They didn't put on pads, but Central Catholic football players donned helmets in yesterday's heat on the first day of high school practice, with dates determined by when school opens.

Central is coming off an excellent 2001 season - 8-2 overall, including 5-1 in the City League, in the regular season, and 9-3 including the Division II playoffs.

The Irish will open the season Friday, Aug. 23, against Fremont Ross at Bowsher.
