Photos: Polk County Football opens 2021 preseason

Polk County’s football team returned to the practice field on Monday as preseason practice officially opened for all fall sports teams.

The Wolverines hit the field Monday afternoon for a brisk workout on what head coach Bruce Ollis called the best weather for an opening day of practice in his forty-plus years of coaching.

Polk County will continue working this week in T-shirts and shorts until Thursday, when the team can add shoulder pads. The team will hold its first contact action of the season on Saturday at 9 a.m.

Polk will host the Wolverine Jamboree on August 11, travel August 13 to Hendersonville for a scrimmage with Eastside before opening the regular season on August 20 at home against Newton-Conover.
