On Aug. 6, the White County Middle School Warriors traveled to Jackson County to take part in a well needed scrimmage.
These scrimmages give the teams a game-like situation that allows teams to prepare for the regular season. Coaches can set up situations such as goal line offense or defense, short yardage or special teams work and still have the opportunity to correct and discuss with the players during the scrimmage.
“Our team got some good work in with Jackson County,” said head coach Jacob Sparkman, after the game. “We wanted to take this opportunity to get some new players on the field and give them a game like experience. We have a lot of young players who needed to see the field to show us what they can do. All in all, I’m very pleased with the progression of our team. We are working hard each day in practice to prepare for our season opener next Tuesday against Walter J. Baird. This team has a chance to be very successful this season.”
Offensive coordinator Jason Carpenter commented on the offense.
“We took the opportunity to work on some formations and plays that we have not worked on a lot this summer,” said Carpenter. “We are fine tuning our offense prior to our first game.”
Defensive coordinator Terry Green also had some comments on the defensive side of the ball.
“The defense looked good,” said Green. “We need to tighten up on some pass coverage assignments but overall played aggressive, tackled well, and contained their offense.”
The WCMS Warriors continue to practice, preparing for next week’s season opener. Details about the game will be the Aug. 12 edition of The Expositor.
