GLENDALE - It's a flooded mess all over the place, including Nicolet High School in Glendale, and its football team's training camp may become a flooded mess as well.  

"We were supposed to start Monday with our summer contact days, four day camp," said Nicolet Football Coach Brian Sommers.

But he tells Wisconsin's Morning News that he's scrambling to get new equipment for his players.

"I can't put an unsanitary piece of equipment on a kid."

Many schools, including Milwaukee Public Schools, have chosen to close their doors on Friday due to the Thursday flooding.

More: Closings

Dramatic video that Coach Summers shot (which you can see by clicking the "watch the video" link) showed how water gushed into his team's basement locker rooms.  

He's making phone calls this morning "to see if we can get another 100 helmets and shoulder pads.  The worst case scenario, I need it by August 9th at the latest."
