DMS football tryouts will begin on Monday, August 14. Middle school football is open to all 7th and 8th grade students that were successfully promoted last year. Tryouts will consist of both football and non-football drills meant to determine an athlete's overall strength, agility, quickness and speed. Day 1 will be mostly non-football drills. Athletes should be prepared for the following: 40-yd dash, pushups, standing broad jump, shuttle run, L-drill, and 4-cone color drill. Day 2 will be football related drills such as passing, catching, blocking, etc. A cut will be made after day 2. Players will receive more specific information about cuts at practice. As always, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
