AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn recently talked about the situation at backup quarterback.
Tyrik Rollison (of Sulphur Springs) is still getting a lot of reps and Neil Caudle is making the most out of his, Malzahn said.
NH volleyball tourney action
NORTH HOPKINS — North Hopkins is hosting a volleyball tournament, Friday, Aug. 21-Saturday, Aug. 22.
Tournament Pool Play results are as follows: Como-Pickton won two matches over Yantis 25-16, 25-19. Avery won against Yantis, 25-15, 25-19. Sulphur Bluff split matches with Yantis winning the first with a final of 25-20, Yantis taking top marks in second match, 25-11, and Sulphur Bluff returning to win the final match 25-17 against Yantis.
It’s the last chance to iron out the kinks before it counts.
Sulphur Springs head football coach Greg Owens admits the Wildcats still needs refinement, but there’s time before the Aug. 28 opener in Paris.
The Wildcats have a home scrimmage today against Terrell at Gerald Prim Stadium. The junior varsity/ninth grade begin at 5 p.m. The varsity will follow at 7 p.m.
UNION HILL — The Como-Pickton Eagles traveled to Union Hill for scrimmage action in the heat and humidity before the storms Thursday night.
"It was a huge boost getting Brandt (Steele) back at linebacker," C-P head football coach Paul Tullis said. Steele had missed some practice due to his ill grandfather.
Tullis said, "I felt the kids rebounded well after the Prairiland scrimmage. They came out with a lot of emotion and worked hard. Offensively, other than a couple of mental mistakes really played well and dominate the line of scrimmage. Defensively, we were still a little soft in the middle. The defensive line is still trying to do too much and taking themselves out of plays."
One word, plain and simple sums up what Sulphur Springs head football coach Greg Owens wants from his team in the Friday home scrimmage against Terrell.
The first scrimmage which was littered by turnovers and penalties did not please the head coach of the defending state champions. He wanted consistency and hopes the Wildcats will eliminate the mistakes they made Saturday in scrimmage action against Henderson.
