Roos impress early, cede ‘big mo’ in second half

(Continued)

“We felt after last week that [the coaching staff] may have been getting a bit ahead of ourselves,” Nelms said. “We condensed the offense to make things a little easier for the offense, and I think they responded very well.

“We just had a hard time keeping pressure on their defense, especially after Grant got hobbled up.”

The Roo defense, starting the night with two consecutive three-and-out series, succumbed to a few injuries and fatigue.

“Our defense did a great job in the early go,” Nelms said, “and I think we got a little worn down and just got tired. We have some injuries over on that side of the ball that kills us.

“We also have more of our younger kids on the defensive side and unfortunately that shows up when you get into the situations we were in.”

Despite a second week where fortunes went well early and then went south, Nelms is still seeing the maturing of the team as they reach for the next level of accomplishment.

“I think we have grown up a lot since last week’s game,” he said. “We came into that game with a lot of excitement and expectations, and I really do think we came out a little nervous and a little tight.

“But there’s a lot of fight in these kids and they are doing what we ask of them. And hey, we’ll get back to the drawing board again tomorrow and continue to get better.”

  • Summer athletic camps — July/August

    Staff Report

    Summer athletic camps become a bit more “meaningful” in the late days of July and into  August, at least for some high school and middle school athletes.

    In most cases, the youth football camps include grades 6 through 8, and though there is no contact involved, some of the instructors of he camp may be getting a preview of the talent coming their way in just a few short weeks.

    Team volleyball camps, stretching from grades 4 through 12, provides a segway for many of the campers who will soon be entering workouts for the impending volleyball season.
