Coach Lance West
indicated the primary practice field for the CHS football team would
still be at the high school. Some practice sessions would be transported
to Sallee Field, especially when wet weather limited other options.
Spring practice with pads (10 days max allowed) will begin about May
12th. "Summer Pride" conditioning will be held during June
and July 6:30-10:30am.
Coach West will
be bringing Coach Kurt Boomer with him from Claremore Sequoyah (&
Fort Gibson). Kevin Jones will be the defensive coordinator. Kelly Anderson
will be the new special teams coordinator. West was head football coach
in Collinsville for the 1996 - 2000 seasons. Rusty Poindexter was CHS
head coach from 2001-2003 followed by Bob Craig 2004-2007.
The new field turf
should be completed for football scrimmages and games starting in August.
I haven't heard yet how summer band might be impacted as their old practice
field has been lost and the start of marching in early
August/late July could press availability of the new field surface.
