“Our boys on defense were not doing what they had been taught to do,” said head coach Shannon Burcham, “lets just say we let them know what they should be doing. The whole team turned it around during the regulation play. The boys responded very well.”
Both teams managed to score once during the two quarters and Trigg was able to rotate several different players into the game to try and find different lineups. The major area of concern for Burcham was the offensive line and the defense as a whole. The running backs, quarter back, and several wide receivers have all but solidified their positions on the team.
“We are trying to find them all right now,” said Burcham of the offensive line, “and when it comes to athletes we want the guys that will fly around and we will get them into the right places”.
The scrimmage allowed the leaders of the team to be vocal for the first time in a game situation and they really stepped up to the plate.
“We have a great group of seniors with great leadership” said Burcham.
Trigg’s biggest standout of the game was Donald Bush who was 8-18 for over 200 yards. One pass went for 46 yards while two others went for over 50. His wide receivers did, however, drop 5 passes.
