Yesterday’s three-hour practice session on the Warren County High School practice football field was the last workout in May for the boys of fall.The Warren County High School football team completed its 10th workout, which bring spring practice to a close after three weeks of intense practice.Coach Tommy Johnson was excited coming into spring practice about the potential of his team. After nine workouts and one scrimmage, the optimism has only grown for the third-year head coach.“I thought we did some really good things over spring practice,” said Johnson. “We have some guys playing really well and we just look stronger and faster.”Coach Johnson stressed the importance of getting into the weight room during the offseason and the message seemed to hit home with his team.Several players have been setting personal bests in the weight room and the strength added off the field has translated onto the field.Strength, especially among the team’s offensive and defensive linemen, could key a big turnaround as the Pioneers are looking to win some games a year after finishing the 2011 season 0-10.Though coach Johnson thinks many of the players in the trenches have improved, some positions still need to be solidified and depth needs to be built.“We got some spots on the line where we’re still looking for some guys,” said Johnson.
