Parker County football game capsules — Week 4 — Ode to the O-line

(Continued)

The Bulldogs’ line play late in the game last week, on both sides of the ball, figured significantly in the outcome, a fact head coach Kyle Coker will build upon itself in the coming weeks, especially as the newly-installed offense continues to gain momentum.

“Our O-line is starting to come together as a unit,” Coker said. “The slot-T offense requires a lot of repetitions to keep improving, because of the assignments and the timing of the plays.

“We are seeing these young men up front get better with each week.”

The Bulldog runners churned out 323 yards last week behind its blockers, with Dylan Burton leading the way with 156 yards. Andrew Tyson and Morgen DePriest added 82 and 78 yards, respectively.

Avoiding the air attack was preferable with the wet conditions of the field last week. Millsap will likely need to go up top against some of the defenses in the district slate who will be intent on stopping the run. 

Along with the advent of the offense, the Bulldogs are also embracing its defensive scheme. The Millsap defenders made a crucial late-game stop after the Windthorst grabbed a fumble, preserving the long-awaited win.

Confidence is high as MHS boys look to begin district with a notch on the left side of the win-loss column and add to the tally.

  • 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.
