ENID, Okla. — Scrimmage pleases WHS coaches
Waukomis coaches were pleased with the Chiefs’ play at a multi-team scrimmage at Covington-Douglas Friday. Assistant coach Jake Jobe said the good thing was being able to hit another opponent for once.
“The offense was able to sustain a couple of drives and the defense hung in there,’’ Jobe said. “We were real proud of the guys sticking their nose in there and fighting. We were very happy with what we were able to do.’’
Smith: C-D linemen stepping up
The line, a pre-season question mark for Covington-Douglas, graded well at the Wildcats’ multi-team scrimmage Friday.
“We have had some guys step up,’’ Covington-Douglas coach Brian Smith said.
Center Cole Smith, guards Ty Golay and Trae Simpson and ends Alan Wilson and Jonah Bigbey were the starting offensive line.
“We got some size there and some athletic ability,’’ Smith said. “More than anything, they know our system and they work hard.’’
Covington-Douglas returns its entire starting backfield in quarterback Quentin Thayer, fullback Blake Morris and tailback Gage Smith. They will scrimmage Timberlake at 6 p.m. Friday at Jet.
“We performed well the other night, but we need to keep improving,’’ Smith said. “We have a lot of work to do. For a first scrimmage, I was very pleased.’’
