CHENEY, Wash. - With these hot temperatures, the Cheney Football Association is asking for your help to hydrate their players. They're asking for donations of powdered Gatorade in the large cans because starting Friday, the players will have two-a-days in 90 degree temperatures.
KHQ and SWX talked to Cheney High School's athletic trainer, Kyle Loughery, who said the players drink 40 to 60 gallons of Gatorade and water during one practice!
The liquids help prevent everything from cramping to concussions.
Loughery said, "Coach and I have a little thing: hydrate or die. It's one of those things where, if you don't hydrate, you may have a lot of injuries, you're going to have a lot of cramping, you're out for an injury."
