Most athletes on the Central Coast have had to adjust their lives since March but the Allan Hancock football team is one of many local programs making strides to get back on the field.
The Bulldogs have been back at it for about a month now as the athletes continue to try to get back into football shape. On Monday the defense hit the field for conditioning, and other various workouts led by first-year head coach Seth Damron.
"When they got here, they’ll tell you, they were struggling just doing the outdoor stuff," Damron said. "They’re in a way better spot than they were in a month ago, so it’s great for them, for their mental health, and getting their bodies ready for whenever that season does come about."
"We’re not thinking about games right now," sophomore defensive back Avery Fondern added. "We’re just conditioning, getting our bodies right and building team bonding and chemistry. It’s huge that we’re on the field together getting to know each other early because by the time the season gets here, we’ll be ready. We’ll be prepared."
