Oak Hill Academy head football coach Leroy Gregg said on Tuesday that the temperature was just a number.
It was a mighty high number by the time Gregg and his team walked out on to the practice field in the mid-afternoon heat.
Temperatures reached as high as 104 degrees on Tuesday afternoon, but it was business as usual for the Raiders, who are getting ready for their season opener against Heritage on August 20.
