Last Friday night, the Monticello football team was able to participate in a 7-on-7 football scrimmage that was reduced to the players participating in various drills due to social distancing guidelines.
Football coach Cully Welter called it a good night overall. He says they started with their freshman athletes and then went all the way to varsity and after the event, the football parents prepared a take-home meal for the players.
Coach Welter says because of the way they have broken up their practices allowed by the IHSA they are considering hosting another 7-on-7 later in the month.
The 7-on-7 was beneficial for Coach Welter because it finally allowed him to get some film of the kids and begin to give them something to watch and begin to work on.
In practice, players are going helmets-only this fall because of the limitations on contact in practices.
