GHSA Expands Role of Wetbulbs in Summer Practices

GHSA Expands Role of Wetbulbs in Summer Practices

We've had some rainy weather, but you know in a few days that sweltering Georgia heat will return.

Last year, the Georgia High School Association dictated that teams have a device that measures the heat and humidity in the air.

It's called a wetbulb.

This year, they amended the rules to include summer workouts.

Here's how it works and why one trainer thinks it will save lives on the football field every August and September.

As coaches drive kids on the field, there is always a person standing on the sidelines keeping an eye on the Georgia sun rays beating down on the grass.  Brad Miles is an athletic trainer.

"The idea is you do not come out to practice if it's too hot," he said.

Miles helped mold the policy that has a microphone-looking device shooting out readings that immediately get documented.

Central Looking to Turn Things Around in 2013

Under second year head coach Jesse Hicks, the Chargers are still looking for some respect.

In his inaugural season, Central went 2-8.

Hicks says despite the record he saw some benefit in his guys toughing it out through a tough 2012 campaign.  He says they grew up.

The Chargers played a lot of younger classmen. Those players have a year under their belt with Hicks and his philosophy's and he says you will see some new faces on the field as they tapped into different resources.

"We've acquired some guys some basketball players and some different guys in the school and I'm really encouraged by attitudes," Hicks said.  "We had some guys that didn't conform and didn't do the things we really needed them to do. They are not with us right now and I think that everything that is with us now is committed to the program!"

Central will not have an easy start, they open up against Westside.

Northeast Wants a Deeper Playoff Run in 2013

The Northeast Raiders had a good season racking up at 8-3 record and making it to the first round of the AA playoffs.

They eventually lost to Fitzgerald.

Head Coach Bruce Mullen has had his kids lifting hard this summer.

Mullen says the challenge this year is keeping consistent.

The Raiders will open up against Twiggs in a little over three weeks.

Mullen says in order to get deeper into the playoffs he has to keep telling his guys the same message.

"We remind the players that no one just gave it to you once you become successful. People are going to be shooting for you, so we have to emphasize it everyday because people are gunning for you, Mullen said." 

Middle linebacker Kentrell Curry went out about mid-season last year.  Mullen says he is excited to see him back in the lineup this year.
