Vienna/Goreville football practice begins Aug. 7

The Vienna/Goreville 2017 football season is approaching and head coach Mike Rude announced the practice schedule for the pre-season.

The first official day for football practice in Illinois is Monday, August 7.

Football is the only high school sport in Illinois that requires a certain number of practices prior to playing in the first game. It is important all players report for practice on Monday, Aug. 7.

All players need to have a physical and turn it in to their respective athletic director or school nurse. A physical is good for a year, so you need to check the date of your most recent physical. All incoming freshmen are required to have a physical.

Practices will be held at the football field in Vienna.
