The first day of high school football practice for the Laramie Plainsmen was completed with two sessions Monday.

Laramie practiced from 7-to-9:30 a.m. and again from 4-to-6 p.m. on the practice field just east of Deti Stadium. Monday was the first of three days that Class 4A teams have without contact and in just helmets. The first full-padded practice will be Thursday.

Laramie coach Clint Reed spoke with KOWB’s David Settle about the one-week later start to practice this year versus a year ago, plus the 4A football scene, and what he’s looking at early in practice in the video above.

The Plainsmen had 65 players report for Fall Camp. They will hold two practices per day through Friday with a single session Saturday. They will also have two practices per day next Monday and Tuesday, Aug. 19 and 20. Laramie will still have morning weight training and conditioning before school with practice after school once the new school year begins on Wednesday, Aug. 21.

Game week preparation for the 2019 season opener versus Kelly Walsh starts Monday, Aug. 26. The season debut at home against the Trojans is Friday, Aug. 31 with a 6 p.m. kick-off at Deti Stadium.
