The Sacred Heart Crusaders definitely went through the dog days of summer in preparation for their scrimmage tomorrow in Bogalusa, LA.

Head coach Lonny Schraeder and his team join division 8 1-A this season and their tough slate begins August 30th against West Lincoln. Sacred Heart will also face defending 1-A champion Stringer and Lumberton, who drops down to 1-A this year.

But even with the challenges, coach Schraeder likes the way his team is progressing, especially from the 2012 campaign.

"We knew nothing at the beginning of the year last year. So we're just light years ahead of where we were last year. I think we're just going to have to grow into it," Schraeder said.

"The kids are going to have to learn what it's like and the commitment it's going to take to be successful in this league."
