Scrimmage caps first week of spring practice
Placeholder Image
Coach Tommy Johnson believes his Warren County High School football team will be much improved this fall. The first three days of spring practice have given the head coach more hope about the Pioneers.Warren County completed its first week of spring practice Friday, culminating with a full-scale scrimmage that saw the Pioneers make big plays on each side of the ball.Coach Johnson has spent the first week installing the team’s new offense, while also making tweaks to the defensive scheme.With most of the offensive starters returning, it would seem the Pioneers would put up some points in the scrimmage.Though Bryson Lewis and D’Andre League did get loose on big runs, the defense was able to do a good job holding the offense in check.One of the best performers of the first week has been Maurkel Breedlove. Breedlove has shifted to strong safety this season after spending most of his time at wide receiver last year.Breedlove is quickly gaining the reputation as a big hitter, as the soon-to-be senior made several tackles during the scrimmage.Overall, coach Johnson was pleased with the progress of the Pioneers and thought the scrimmage gave the team and coaching staff plenty to review.“The scrimmage went about how I expected,” said Johnson.
