Wildcats Offensive Coordinator Matt Young likes what he is seeing from offensive players so far. The Wildcats completed a third day of practice without pads Wednesday evening outside the Multipurpose Building. Coach Young says he loves the kids’ energy.
He says Monday was an especially good day. He says there was a dip Tuesday. Coach Young says Tuesday wasn’t bad. It just did not match Monday. He says players rebounded Wednesday with another good effort. Coach Young says this was a surprise because Wednesday is usually a grind day. He liked players attention to details.
Coach Young says retention from lessons learned during spring football is fabulous. He says he is especially pleased with retention from offensive linemen Charlie Maddux, Jesus Olivo, Ian Blanch, Hayden Daniel, Ethan Rogers and Norris English. Coach Young says he is also enjoying the pace of the offense so far. Concerning receivers, quarterbacks Ryan Humphries and D’Corian Young and a plethora of running backs, Coach Young says he is excited that so many guys can really play. He says there is a large group of juniors and seniors that are so committed.
Coach Young says he is ready to play an opponent. He says video against an opponent more effectively shows players errors than practice video. The Wildcats will scrimmage at Liberty-Eylau on August 25. Coach Young says there is still a lot of improvement needed but he says coaches have a lot of confidence in this year’s football Wildcats.
