    A Texas high school football tradition may be changing.

    The University Interscholastic League Medical Advisory Committee is considering new regulations on 2-a-day practices.

    The Dallas Morning News reports that three changes have been proposed, including one that prohibits 2-a-days on back-to-back days -- unless you're a volleyball player.

    Additionally, recovery time between practices on 2-a-days would also be extended from one hour to two and multiple practices cannot occur within the first four days.

    The move is obviously designed to protect athletes from heat and heat-related illnesses.

    A UIL committee will meet later this month to discuss the proposals.
