Warren County football took another step in its 2017 season Friday as the Pioneers divided to conquer with half the team wearing white and the other red at a Nunley Stadium scrimmage.Playing four quarters, the red team ended up with 14 points and white didn’t score but in the end it was a team effort with players trading positions to get field time and game-speed scenarios to work on fundamentals practiced over the last three weeks of offseason football.“We split the team up, so of course we’re not going to be as sharp as we will as a cohesive unit,” said WCHS football coach Tom Moore. “Everyone got to play and we’ve got a lot of younger receivers that we need to work to get better. You have to work on something to get better at it, so that’s what we’re doing.”Moore told the team to stay focused on their jobs and not play the blame game, or dwell on mistakes, but encourage each other and stay focused.“We’ve got a good attitude,” Moore said, and stressed the importance of body language on the field.
