Practices are now into the fine tuning and weeding out stage. The players and coaches are now familiar with each other. The defensive signals and calls are now known. As the defense gets down to the specifics and fine tuning, the players that are not meeting expectations are getting left behind. Players must stay on top of the daily defensive installs, know the calls, and play with the proper technique that the coaches have been teaching us. The coaches are like our bosses, and we have to do what they want us to do and HOW they want us to do it. Some players don't understand this concept. With this being said, the two deep are starting to be solidified and coaches are no longer letting stuff slide that was happening in the first half of spring ball. Players are also being moved around to find the best fit and get the best players on the field.
We are now 2/3 of the way done with spring ball! Scrimmage #2 is in the books and we are 10 practices down. It is flying by and the spring game will be here before you know it. Headed into spring break, we get a much needed rest period. All the players are excited to get back home and enjoy a few days off. This break will allow us a break from the daily grind to refresh our bodies, get our mind off football, and come back energized and ready to finish strong!
