Snow no deterrent to football practice

An early March snowstorm on March 3 did not stop the Rim High School football team from proceeding with a scheduled practice.

Joseph Jurado, Rim High’s head football coach, told The Alpine Mountaineer on March 12 that he had never practiced in that type of weather – as a player, assistant coach or head coach.

“We are committed to keeping our practice schedule due to the reduced number of days we have to practice for our first game,” Jurado said. “It’s required by the CIF to practice a minimum of three days of conditioning and 10 days in pads.”

Asked how the players reacted to the experience, Jurado said, “The kids had a positive experience. There were occasional snowballs and a whole lot of slipping,” he said, adding, “There’s not a lot of glory playing at a small school in a small community. We’re not on TV and rarely in the papers. Our program is about the school and the community.”

Noting that Rim has generations of kids whose dads, grandparents and great-grandparents played for the Scots, Jurado said the school’s coaching staff is mainly comprised of former Rim players.

“We’re very excited to be able to provide the community with some form of watching football, whether in person or through some type of live stream,” the coach said.
