The extreme heat in Middle Tennessee on Wednesday is forcing some to take extra precautions for safety. Football practice at Lebanon High School was pushed back to 7 p.m. Wednesday night to avoid having players working during the hottest part of the day. Wednesday's morning practice was also cut short due to rising temperatures. Head football coach Sam Harp told Nashville's News 2 safety comes first. "None of it is worth it of you get a kid in trouble or hurt," he said. Harp said coming back from summer break, coaches are trying to make sure players are not overworked. "You kind of have to gradually build into it so that you don't overdo it when you first get them back," said Coach Harp. Players won't practice in full pads until later this month.
