Midnight Madness at City View HS

By UIL rules, this year fall sports teams could begin practice at 12:01 a.m. Monday morning, August 4th. One Texoma team did just that.
The City View Mustangs held a "Midnight Madness" practice on their brand-new field at Veterans' Stadium in northwest Wichita Falls Monday morning.

One of the keys for this season for Rudy Hawkins' team is improved tackling. They're using a new, shoulder-centered technique taught by the coach Pete Carroll of the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks, that they hope will make their tackling not just more effective, but also safer.

Monday morning, Coach Hawkins said it was something the kids were really excited for.

"We think this is kind of a good idea," Hawkins said. "To try to get things started off quickly, and show off the new facility and all, and just be one of the first ones to be able to practice for the 2014 season. It's just a different atmosphere for the kids, and something new that we've never done here before. The kids think it's pretty cool, and we're excited to do it."

After making the playoffs in 2013 for just the second time in team history, the Mustangs have high hopes for this season.
