Taking precautions

San Felipe Del Rio CISD Athletic Director Ric Smith takes the temperature of Rams football assistant coach Derek Casillas prior to the start of a summer strength and conditioning program session June 15. In addition to daily temperature checks, the school district also disinfects equipment three times a day during the program.

Del Rio High’s summer strength and conditioning workouts are rolling into their third week even as other school districts are halting their programs due to the coronavirus.

The workouts began June 15 at Walter Levermann Ram Stadium with about 200 student-athletes, returners from last school year’s fall sports, participating. Since then, the workouts have expanded to include more student-athletes from additional sports.
