Chattanooga Red Wolves Finally Return to Practice


East Ridge, TN (WDEF-TV) The Chattanooga Red Wolves were finally able to return to practice on Thursday for the first time in nearly two months, although there were a few restrictions because of the coronavirus pandemic. The players had their temperatures taken before stepping on the field, and they were limited to a group size of four.  Only 12 players worked out Thursday with the other 12 team members set to workout on Friday. Head coach Jimmy Obleda characterized the practice as merely individual workout sessions as opposed to a true practice. The team was able to practice at their new CHI Memorial Stadium going up in East Ridge.

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at
