Around two months after finishing its alternative fall season, the Ripon High School football team was back at work last week as it held two of its five contact days.

The Tigers, who will be led by third-year head coach Mark Bradley, look to return to a sense of normalcy after last year’s COVID-19 impacted season that saw them compete in the Flyway Conference in the spring rather than their usual East Central Conference in the fall.

Ripon has three more contact days to use before being able to issue equipment Monday, Aug. 2 and begin practicing officially for the fall season Tuesday, Aug. 3.
