EVART\u00a0\u2014 Evart\u2019s football program is set to begin its official practice season Monday with the annual midnight kickoff. \u201cLast week, we did lifting Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings,\u201d football coach Pat Craven said. The same schedule is in effect for this week. On Sunday at 7 p.m., Evart football coaches will have a parents\u2019 meeting, plus a players gathering and equipment handout. The first practice is at midnight for 90 minutes. The midnight kickoff has been a tradition in recent years for Evart. \u201cMost of the kids spend the night in the gym,\u201d Craven said. The midnight practice is at the game field to utilize the lights. Practices continue during the week 4-9 p.m. Monday\u2019s practice won\u2019t last as long because of the midnight session. Craven said he\u2019s not sure of the exact numbers he\u2019ll get to the practices. \u201cWe\u2019re hoping to have better numbers than last year,\u201d he said. \u201cAt this point in time, we\u2019re still trying to communicate with all the kids.\u201d The season opens at White Cloud on Aug. 28.
