Football practice to start two days earlier in 2014

Proposal approved by schools in December.

For some, high school football can't come soon enough. In 2014, it will come even earlier than usual.

On Wednesday, the IHSA announced that a proposal moving up the start of high school football practice was approved by its membership schools. Instead of starting on Wednesday, Aug. 13, practice may now start on Monday, Aug. 11. 

The proposal passed with a 336-120 vote count. 

Ten other proposals on the ballot were also approved by the IHSA schools. They can be found here
