The ‘Blue Cats’ offensive line opened gapping holes to allow the running backs free lanes to gash the defense. But if the Blue team tried to go to the air the White team’s secondary was up to the task and frustrated the air attack.
The ‘White Cats’ struggled a bit to get a consistent offense going with the ‘Blue Cats’ defensive line constantly getting into the backfield. But the aggressive defense had its flaw as the white team had a lot of cut-back lanes and exploited them on their long drives. With the coaches looking on and head coach Dain Gregory watching everything with a cool demeanor you can tell this is a different team than last years.
“I really liked our enthusiasm, both teams gave it all they had, I thought it was a great scrimmage,” Gregory said “This was a great night for Cougar football.
But despite all the highlights that the Cougars provided for the crowd, the coaches know that they will learn more about their team when they take the field against someone else.
“This is good for us, but we need to play another team,” coach Gregory said “We need to go out there and play another team and see where we measure.”
With the scrimmage at Muhlenberg County fast approaching the coaches and fans are excited to see where this team will measure up. The team showed flashes at the scrimmage but once again the excitement has to be tempered.
“We’re going to get it all together where we’re all on the same side of the ball,” coach Gregory said “We’re going to see how good we are or how bad we are.”
But despite the cautious approach that the coaches are taking to its hard for any of them to hide the smiles and excitement they are feeling.
“I’m tickled to death with them,” coach Gregory said “I’d take either one of those two teams.”
The scrimmage that will really show who the Cougars are is coming up this Friday at Muhlenberg County. Then it’s ready or not, the season kicks off next Friday at Butler County. But if this scrimmage is any indication the Cougars are getting closer to being ready.
