Panhandle Football Scrimmage


More photos at Shots by Shirley

Saturday's scrimmage showed a lot of good things and a lot of things that need work.  But that's the reason we scrimmage...to see how far we've come and to see what has to be done before the season begins.  The scrimmage ended in a tie with no new injuries and no cramping (this shows the boys are really conditioned).  Two a day practices were in very favorable weather and the hot sun took a toll on both teams Saturday.  Next scrimmage will be on Friday in Sundown at 6:30 (more like the time we will be playing).  We're looking forward to more precisioned line assignments, filled holes and on point blocking.  
All wrapped up!
REALLY all wrapped up!
I've got it!
I SAID, I've got it!
 
Let's celebrate!
I'll show you CELEBRATION!
Note to officials:  We know scrimmages are used to train new officials but really guys...you're gonna have to keep players off Edgar's facemask!)

FYI Moms:  I get to be a lot of places that mom's normally don't get photos.  One of those is the end of the game with the coaches talking to the players.  Please know that you're kids are loved by all those coaches and they want to draw the best out of each and every one of them.  Now grab a tissue before you go to www.shotsbyshirley.smugmug.com/Football/Panhandle-Football-Scrimmage/ cause there are some pretty powerful photos of the coaches talking to your boys...geez, I had to get a tissue!

And these are some of the reasons I am...
