Bruin Football Head Coach Randy Sehy was pleased with his team’s effort in the scrimmage on Friday night at South Adams. “We played well and were much improved over our performance a year ago,” Sehy said.
The Bruins and Starfires played evenly throughout the night as both teams played several kids in the scrimmage. For the Bruin defense, they got a great test of their conditioning as the Starfires played an uptempo offense running their first 15 plays in under 6 minutes of the 18 available.
Sehy continued, “Most players are really stepping up and accepting their roles.” This will be important for the Bruins who have far more depth at the skilled positions than up front. One huge bonus of the scrimmage was that their didn’t appear to be any injuries.
Sehy added, “We look a lot more competitive.” That is a good sign and will be put to the test early as the Bruins head to Jay County on Friday to play what many think will be a good Patriots team. The Bruins were hampered by several turnovers and even more penalties in last year’s 42-8 loss.
The Bruins will be an improved team as nearly the entire back field and several starters are back from ’16. Add that to the fact that the Bruins may have the most overall athletic team that they have put on the field in the past several years, and most are optimistic about what lies ahead.
Looking for a huge crowd to make their way east on Friday to support the Bruins in their opener. Kick-off at Jay County is set for 7pm.
