New heat rules for summer football practice

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - High school football practices officially start Monday, but coaches will be taking extra precautions before players step on the field in the summer heat.

Under a new FHSAA policy, two-a-day practices are not allowed the first week back. Teams can also only practice three-and-a-half hours each day.

This comes after two players died during practice last year.
