Pioneers set for Riverdale test
Placeholder Image
The frustrations of hitting teammates twice a day is starting to set in for the Warren County High School football team. Fortunately, tonight will provide a new target for the Pioneers.After three days of two-a-day practices, along with traveling to Lincoln County last night for a scrimmage, the Pioneers will suit up against the Riverdale Warriors tonight in Murfreesboro.The scrimmage was originally scheduled to be held at Warren County High School at the practice field, but the switch was made after Franklin High School also decided to join the scrimmage activity tonight.Pitting the Pioneers against Riverdale and Franklin should give coach Tommy Johnson and his staff a good idea of what lessons the team has learned during camp.Coach Johnson believes following tonight’s scrimmages, he’ll know a lot more about his team.“We’re going to get a good look at our team tonight,” said Johnson. “We’ll know more about ourselves after our scrimmages.”Coach Johnson and his staff have spent this week trying to improve a very young team which will come into the 2011 season short on experience, but stronger in numbers.The Pioneers entered camp with 72 players, up nearly 20 from the number of Pioneers who traveled to Rhea County for last season’s final game.Though the numbers have added depth to Warren County, it has also added inexperience.
