Rifle High School football players warm up by doing jumping jacks on Monday morning during the team's first practice of the season at Bears Stadium in Rifle. The Bears, like other high school fall sports programs around Colorado, held their first official practice of the season on Monday. Rifle, for the third consecutive year, got an early jump on everyone by starting practice at 12:01 a.m. Monday.
