COLUMBIA — The Rock Bridge and Hickman football teams started their new seasons Monday with the first official day of two-a-day practices.
Rock Bridge coach A.J. Odofile and Hickman coach Jason Wright are scheduling practices for early in the morning and in the evening to avoid heat-related problems.
Rock Bridge finished with a 5-5 record last year, and Hickman ended at 4-6. Both teams look to improve this year. They will face off against each other August 27 to begin their seasons.
