Db’s Are Better This Year

In football  they are “loneliest” positions on the field; corner back and safety. Those players are pretty much out there on their own trying to cover receivers.  Last year was a tough year for the Grizzlies at those position s but this year it’s different according to head coach Mick Delaney. “They’ve really improved and there’s a lot of competition with five experienced players at corner and some young guys too,” Delaney said.  “It’s the same way at the safety position too, where we have five guys who have played.  I think we’re getting better in the secondary because of day-to-day competition.”   Sophomore Nate Harris agrees with the coach, “I feel like we’re all very experienced coming back. We are trying to perfect our technique.  We learned it all last year, and now we’re tweaking things and learning even more, and working on different schemes. The key (to his position) is confidence.  All the guys have the athletic talent, but it’s the most confident guys who can rely on their technique and play with confidence, who get the most done on the field. “

Here’s the Grizzlies practice schedule for the rest of this week;

Wednesday, Aug. 14: 1-a-day schedule.  Practice begins at 2:00 p.m.

Thursday, Aug. 15: 2-a-day schedule.  Practices start at 8:30 a.m. and at 7:45 p.m.

Friday, Aug. 16: 1-a-day schedule.  Practice begins at 2:00 p.m.

Saturday; Aug. 17: Scrimmage at 10:10 a.m.
