But rest assured, activities will resume as Summer Pride enters its final weeks before the start of the new school year. Both the high schodl and middle school football players hit the weights and conditioning drills hard during June in preparation for the upcoming season.

It doesn’t provide for much of a chance to make up missed dates for unex— cused absences. Since it has been in effect, the kids have stepped up their efforts to be there. “You either come to Summer Pride and play or you don’t,” he said, “and not one kid missed out on playing because of Summer Pride.” Williams added thus far,’ only one player missed a workout because he over- slept. Other than that, those with excused absences were because of family vaca- tions, other summer sports participations or at church camp. . “is Bid with our competitive on moriey , market accounts, savings, and 1- Certificates ‘ ' of deposit, We’ll help your investrnents grow.
