Offensive changes highlight first day of spring practice
Placeholder Image
Change was the buzz word surrounding the start of spring practice for the Warren County High School football team. Changing schemes and coaching personnel makes coach Tommy Johnson hopeful the Pioneers will change the perception of the program.Looking to put an 0-10 season in the past, Warren County started spring practice Monday and quickly started making changes that will make the Pioneers look like a new team in the fall.Former offensive coordinator Aaron Pitts took the spread offense with him to Stratford High School, where he is the new head coach.Pedro Holiday, who has coached the Pioneer wide receivers and quarterbacks the last two seasons, has assumed the play-calling duties and the Pioneer offense should look a bit different.Monday’s practice featured sophomore Hunter Mullican going under center to take the majority of his snaps, a rarity the past two seasons.The Pioneers look focused to use more I-formation sets, along with many tight-end looks as well. Coach Holiday isn’t entirely scrapping the spread, especially with the type of backfield talent Warren County returns.While Mullican is firmly entrenched as the team’s starting quarterback, juniors Cameron Lusk and D’Andre League and sophomore Bryson Lewis are all battling for carries.Lusk could pull double duty in the backfield, lining up at tailback and fullback.
