Scorching Texas Heat Melts HS Player’s Shoe During Practice (Pic)
High school football is a well-documented obsession in Texas. Teams prepare for the season year-round, which can be problematic in mid-August when temperatures can reach up to 110 degrees in the afternoon during two-a-days.
Not only does the Texas heat have a tendency to, you know, kill players, but it can also raise some hell on their equipment.
This player for Allen, a suburb of Dallas, took a picture of his melted cleat and posted it on Twitter. Uh, maybe go inside and watch some film or have a weight room day, guys.

Maybe Nike will hook him up with some new shoes, but I think the kid and the team would be better served by someone speaking up and getting them out of those blazing temperatures. Allen’s got a ridiculously expensive stadium. How much to make it an air-conditioned dome?
