Sulphur Springs began their second day of football practice buoyed by the good work put in on Monday, the opening day to workout.
“Monday was a good day for the most part, we had a little rough patch, but that is to be expected,” said Matt Young, Wildcats offensive coordinator. “We threw a lot at them the first day because we have lots of guys back. Now we can work on the details.”
Young said, “They played hard, it was the first time for them to be on the field for two and half hours. We are pleased with the attitudes. We have high expectations.”
The Wildcats worked out Monday from 8:06 a.m. to 10:40 a.m. before going inside for work on special teams and video and then lifted weights.
Defensive coordinator Triston Abron was also pleased with the way workouts have begun.
“We really gave them a lot of info, we did not do a lot of re-teaching because they remembered it from last year,” Abron said. “If they remember what we have taught before, then we can progress faster when we put in new things.”
For the second day in a row the Wildcats were greeted by 72 degree temperatures to start workouts.
“The weather was great. The heat really has not been a factor because most of the players were through ‘The Edge,’” Abron said. “Practice slowed down a little near the end. But heat or hot conditions were not a factor.”
Zach Spigner was turning heads on plays at running back. Spigner was a leader on defense last year with 76 tackles.
Jaylon Hawkins also looked quick and fast at running back. Quarterback Larry Pryor had a nice run during the 7-on-7 drills in Tuesday competition.
More hits are coming when pads are issued Friday.
