The SoBoCo “black team” defeated the “white team” in Saturday morning’s inter-squad scrimmage, but for Eagles head coach Trent Tracy, it was a matter of seeing young players step up and make plays.
“I was really pleased to see a number of young guys step into new roles and make plays,” Tracy said.
The Eagles had big plays from No. 2 QB Seth Mueller, Sam Stichnote and Jackson Sartain on offense. Mueller, Cole Morris and Dominic Lawrence on defense. Offensive linemen Brett Price, Blake Wooden and Brady Holton also got praise from Coach Tracy. “Our entire offensive line did a good job today,” the coach said.
“Cole did a lot of what I expect him to do on defense,” Tracy said, “you think he’s blocked on a play or it’s going to the other side of the field – and, then, there’s Cole, making a play. That is why he was All Conference last year.
Tracy said that by dividing the Eagles first and second teams, the scrimmage created some mismatches – which won’t be the case next Friday evening as the Eagles host Father Tolton and Hallsville in a jamboree at 6 p.m.
“We will have our entire first team out there and I think there will be even more intensity,” Tracy said.
