In the community, several of the players are spending their Mondays over the next few weeks volunteering for the YMCA after-school program at Eckstein Middle School. The student-athletes will spend two hours during their off-days playing activitites like kickball, flag football, basketball and parkour and participating in classroom activities like cooking, music producing and latin studies.
The Huskies continue to practice every day, except Mondays, until the regular season starts Feb. 14 at the Texas State Tournament.
