The second day of practice had a quicker pace with the Wildcats forced to learn on the run with new season looming on the horizon.
The Wildcats are in scrimmage action in just 10 days as they trek to Liberty-Eylau on Aug. 16.
“Catch the ball and go. Get upfield,” said Greg Owens, Sulphur Springs head football coach. “You will move quickly or some people will be doing up downs. It’s a mental attitude.”
Owens said practice went well the second day. Again he welcomed the light breeze which was present as practices began at 8 a.m.
“As long as the breeze keeps blowing we will be all right. It never really got that hot,” Owens said.
Tuesday morning all was moving smoothly and the team and players were buoyed by enthusiasm.
“It’s a great day to be a Wildcat,” said Matt Young, offensive coordinator. “This is a good group. They are ready to learn.”
The fast-paced offense moved from individual drills to team screen drills. Players then took their places to 7-on-7 work.
“Catch the ball and go score,” Young said to his charges. Quarterback, receivers and running backs all were on the go in the fast-paced attack.
Owens said, “The first day was great to be back on the grass practicing. It’s the start of a new season and kids and coaches are excited for the fresh start. Our off-season was so long. The kids retention was great. We have a lot of work to do. It is good to get back together.”
Owens said the team also has been working on special teams and looking for new punters and kickers.
