WATCH: Area high school football teams compete at annual 7-on-7 competition at Welcome Stadium

They are not trying to rush the summer, but ready or not, the high school football season is less than six weeks away. Area teams can begin two-a-day workouts two weeks from next Monday, but that doesn’t mean they have to wait that long.

Several teams were on the field Friday for the annual 7-on-7 competition hosted by the Dayton Flyers football coaches at Welcome Stadium

Northmont, Springfield, Chaminade-Julienne, Centerville, Miamisburg, Wayne, Coldwater, Belmont and Greenville were all there to battle 90-degree temperatures to get ready for the 2018 season.

Northmont head coach Tony Broering says the day-long workout is a plus for a T-Bolt team that has some holes to fill.

“We’re learning, that’s why we come down here to get a lot of practice in and get a good learning environment,” he said.
