Franklin Simpson/ Hart Co. Scrimmage Recap*
Coach Embry & staff evaluated players in the first scrimmage vs Franklin Simpson & Hart Co. Again, the purpose of preseason scrimmages to evaluate ability in game like situations. Missing valuable practice time, can impact playing time. August 2,3,4th were mini camp days for BCHS Bears, in which extra hours of prep were installed.
Offensively Coach Embry, liked what he saw in offensive lineman, Reece Filback at center; Brock Phingston, Ian Moore, Dalton Freeman, and Heath Chaney. Game film showed Freeman with several “Pancake Blocks."
Offensively, noted good solid work from receivers Jake Mckee, Solomon Flener, and QB- Jagger Henderson.
Defensively on the night’s first scrimmage vs FS, and Hart Co. noted play came from Zack Silcox, inside Linebacker, & Dillon Hudnall. On the Defensive Line good work from Dalton Freeman, Ian Moore & Kyle Chambers. A pick six interception for a touchdown by Solomon Flener during the Hart Co. scrimmage.
Coach Embry, “The work never ends, these next four days of practice are valuable and much needed for our second scrimmage.” Attendance is a must, as we prep daily, and look towards our opening game of the season with the Russellville Panthers, Friday, August 20th @ Rhea Stadium in Russellville, Ky.
