Italy — With the first week of 2-a-days almost complete, the Italy Gladiators will suit up in full pads on Friday. The weather has slowly dropped from 107˚ on Monday to 101˚ on Thursday. On Friday, the expected high is 101˚ with a real feal of 111˚, slightly cooler than Thursday.
The players have handled the grueling temperatures without complaint and continue to improve their performance level. Positive attitudes and camaraderie have helped the Gladiators conquer week one.
Kudos to the Seniors who have been leading by example. The coaches have been on top of their game as well. The team is definitely heading in the right direction.
