Javelinas: "surviving the heat"

Posted: Updated:
KINGSVILLE -

Scorching temperatures in Kingsville is making practice for the Javelinas difficult. The heat index reached 115 at Javelina Stadium Friday afternoon. Add an extra 10 degrees because of artificial turf, wow, these Hogs are extra tough. 

"I believe there's anywhere in the country that has the type of elements we have here in August," said head coach Daren Wilkinson. "it's hot, it's humid and it's really tough. The turf is hot but our defense has done a wonderful job in these tough conditions. They work really hard and the offense needs to catch up to that level to compete day in and day out."   

The Javelinas will scrimmage Saturday morning at 10am and it's a free public event. 

They open the regular season September second.at  Javellina Stadium.
