Spring football training can really be an eye-opening experience for a coach.
This is the first time they get to see a new composition of players take the field and they can truly see what they have to work with for the upcoming season.
Starkville Academy is right in the midst of that process and so far, coach Jeff Terrill is “real pleased” with where the team stands.
“This spring has been really great,” Terrill said. “We have great attitudes, great effort and are really making some strides. (The) only thing that has been a downer is losing some practice time due to weather.”
One of the reasons for the impressive performance so early in the year might be the Volunteers are not having to play so many new starters, which is basically what last year’s crop found themselves doing at this time of year.
“We rolled into last year, (and) we had a skill set that was young and we were transitioning offenses, so not only did you have young players, but they were learning a different system,” Terrill said. “This year you have more experience and they are in phase two of the scheme, so you can see the difference.”
