It was training day for Lewis and Clark High School sophomore football player Casey Blake Pierce, 16, as he executes a series of up-downs Wednesday, Aug. 10, 2016, while working out for the upcoming season in Clark Park at the corner of Lacrosse Avenue and Normandie Street in Spokane. Pierce circled the park five times with a football tucked under his arm and stopped along the way to do calisthenics. The first day of practice is Aug. 17. He wants to play running back and has chosen to wear No. 21 after his favorite player, Ezekiel Elliott, of the Dallas Cowboys.
