East Forsyth sophomore kicker Andrew Conrad (25) practices a point after touchdown.

Thursday marked the start of August, and the summer heat came with it. The skies were clear and the temperature was in the mid-80s at East Forsyth High School in Kernersville.

It was the first official day practices for fall sports allowed by the NCHSAA for the 2019-20 school year. The East Forsyth football team was out on its practice field adjacent to Fred E. Lewis Stadium, running through drills over the 2½-hour practice.

The Journal caught up with Coach Todd Willert and the Eagles, who are entering a new season after coming off their win in last year's NCHSAA Class 4-A title game — the team's first since 1992.
