Placeholder Image
Coach Greg Cotten has been impressed by a number of things during his Warren County Middle School football team’s two-week spring practice, but the one thing which has stood out since workouts is the sheer number of players coming out for football.With over 50 players showing up this spring, coach Cotten will finally have enough players to have an intersquad scrimmage in the spring, something he has wanted to do since taking over the Pioneer program in 2008.Tonight will be the final time for the Pioneer players to showcase their talents until the fall, as spring practice wraps up tonight with a scrimmage at Nunley Stadium at 6:30 p.m.Coach Cotten has already split up his roster to make tonight’s scrimmage a challenge to all his players, along with spicing up the lineups to showcase some of the top returning stars from last year’s Central Tennessee Conference champions.Coach Cotten is hopeful his players take the challenge set forth by him and his staff and make tonight’s scrimmage a special night for the middle school program.“We’re looking to see how the guys play when the lights are on, fans are in the stands and the referees are around blowing whistles,” said Cotten. “We’ve split up the squads and the coaching staff has split up. We’ve installed the base offense and defense.”
