With seniors sitting in several starting spots on the Warren County High School football team’s depth chart, young Pioneers have had to work hard to make an impression during fall practice.Coach Tommy Johnson has wanted to see his veteran players tested by some relative newcomers and several players have stepped up to the challenge. Whether it has been opportunities due to another player’s injuries or moving positions, coach Johnson is seeing new players step up on a daily basis.“With some guys having injuries and sitting out, other players have stepped in and made an impression,” said Johnson. “We have guys taking advantage of the reps they are getting and making themselves better each day.”Darius Wright is one player who went into fall practice searching for a spot and may leave practice as one of the team’s most indispensable players.
