Friday night lights are just around the corner as High School Football practice officially starts today.
Woodbury Central High School is just one of many that were able to lace up their shoes.
Today the players and coaches express their excitement on the official start of their season.
A new season also means a new head coach for the Wildcats.
"Excited, very excited, I think the team is excited, we’re, the players are excited getting a new system in, that’s going to take a little time but so far during camp they’ve been on the right track and nothing but good things," says, Kurt Bremer, Wildcats Head Coach.
The Wildcats have been in summer camp prior to this official start date.
The team is now starting practices everyday Monday through Friday.
For some seniors on the team this day marks their "last first day."
"I’m just excited to get going I’m ready for the season to start, I’ve been waiting all summer for this, new coach, new offense, new everything, just really excited and ready to go," says, Garrett Arment, Senior Starting Quarterback.
The Wildcats were 4-5 last season missing the playoffs.
They will start their season at home August 24th against Hinton.
