7-on-7s yield mixed results

Published 10:31am Monday, July 29, 2013

As the summer sessions come to a close, the Benjamin Russell Wildcats aren’t pleased with how their final 7-on-7 drills went.
In a wet, slosh-filled and abbreviated scrimmage earlier this week, the Wildcats were never able to really settle in, going 1-1 earlier this week at Jacksonville State. Their third matchup was called due to bad weather.
“We didn’t get much done,” said BRHS head football coach Danny Horn. “The way it ended up going, we’d play one game and have to sit out two hours, then re-exercise and start it all over again.”
The sputtering nature of the scrimmages seemed to throw off the team’s rhythm, Horn said.
“We weren’t able to play the games back to back as I would’ve liked to,” Horn said. “It was a mess.”
The sloppy weather seemed to reflect the early play of the Wildcats.
“To be honest with you, I was disappointed in our effort during the first game,” Horn said. “We didn’t play well.”
With the less than stellar performance put behind them, the Wildcats will turn their attention to fall practice.
The first day of fall practice is Aug. 5.
