Hickman football has “unreal” chemistry

COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)

The Hickman football has already built a bond through summer workouts, according to head coach Cedric Alvis.

"A lot of the bickering and different things that we've had that have been kind of our Achilles heel in the past, so far early on fingers crossed, we've been encouraging kids through things," he said. "Boys have been inspiring people, they've been motivated, things that have not happened previously."

In addition to that bond, a normal offseason has also been an asset to the Kewpies through the summer. Alvis said players were excited to use the weight room together, wear pads, get gear, and all of the other things they didn't get with COVID-19.

"I enjoy going to work and that's been awesome," Alvis said. "I'm not saying I haven't in years previous, but with COVID it was tough. It was definitely tough. A lot of kids quit, a lot of different regulations, so this summer has been awesome. I have not had a bad day quote, unquote in the office yet."

Hickman's season is set to kickoff on August 27 on the road against Francis Howell.
