Maxwell football players putting in summer work

School has been out on summer break for less than three weeks. Although the Class of 2017 took with it ten varsity players, that is no deterrent to the remaining athletes at Maxwell High School.

Seniors Jake Bell and Angel Velazquez have coordinated a two-day-a-week conditioning routine for both JV and Varsity players, who are currently signed up on the 2017 football roster.

“We are starting now because a lot of the players will be playing both sides of the ball and need to be well prepared for the season,” Bell said.

Conditioning sessions, which take place at the Maxwell High School football field, are held Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6 p.m. A typical session consists of exercises known as jingle jangles, gassers, 100-yard sprints, or four quarters which is consecutive sprints.

“This year, we have half the team out here working hard,” said Velazquez, an incoming senior.

Some players started preparing for the season as early as May, and being a small school, Maxwell doesn’t have a long list of athletes to choose from.

An expected 17-player squad will represent the varsity team, with many players taking part in every phase of the game. While the squad will be small, the expectations remain as high as ever for the Panthers football team.

“My expectations for our varsity team this year is to go out and put everything on the field to prove that the talent hasn’t left Maxwell yet,” Bell said. “We still have a lot of talent left in this small town. By the time official practice begins, these summer conditioning sessions will have our team in good shape and we’ll be ready to get straight to it.”

Official practice will commence July 31 for the Panthers.
