Football: LA prepares for upcoming season

-A A +A

'Toppers taking advantage of spring practice time

By Mike Cote

There is a lot of work to be done before fall rolls around and the Los Alamos Hilltopper football program isn’t wasting any time in getting at it.
And while getting prepped for the 2011 football season is first priority, setting the groundwork for years to come is also at the top of the to-do list.
Los Alamos is wrapping up its second week of spring workouts this week, hoping the extra work will pay off this season.
Teams around New Mexico have the opportunity this season to hold spring workouts. The New Mexico Activities Association, which governs most interscholastic sports at the middle school and high school levels, approved spring workouts early this year in order for teams to get a jump on mandatory practice, which will start Aug. 1.
 “We’ve been going with drills, getting our techniques for stances, others are working on their positions,” said Hilltopper Alan Dahl, who will be a senior in the fall. “I feel like this is going to be warming us up for more advanced stuff, getting the basics.”
About 40 Hilltopper returners and prospective players have been showing up on a daily basis since the workouts began May 16, the Monday after the spring sports season concluded. By rule, activity is limited to one hour following school and cannot include contact.
