The Skidmore-Tynan Bobcats and A.C. Jones Trojans picked up the intensity of their practices with inter-squad scrimmages, while the Pettus Eagles, under head coach Dan Garza, went through a regular practice.
“We took a good look at our young kids on Saturday. We know what our upperclassmen can do. We need to find some players that can fill the holes from last year’s team,” said Trojan head coach Troy Moses.
Moses had sophomore Cameron Kremers guiding the first team offense, and the tall left-hander gave evidence that he could handle the offense and looked sharp on the few pass plays of the scrimmage. Beeville had Roger Salazar, Tristan Pelitire and Eric Rosales in the backfield with Kremers for the first team.
“I am really excited about our potential. We saw a lot of positive things on Saturday that we can build on,” Moses said.
“I’m very anxious to find out how we look against a different team.”
That chance will come this Saturday when the Sinton Pirates visit Veterans Memorial Stadium for a scrimmage that begins at 5 p.m. with the freshman and JV teams. The varsity boys will take the field in their controlled action at 6:30 p.m.
The Bobcats had good results and first year head coach Russell Joy was pleased with his varsity.
“We are way ahead of where I thought we would be. The guys have really picked up our system well, said Joy after Saturday’s scrimmage.
The work of the Bobcats will allow Joy and his staff to quickly implement some of the finer details to his system on both offense and defense as well as special teams play. Joy has also been impressed with the Cats’ athleticism.
“We’ll have about 30 players on our varsity and they are all athletes. It should allow us to play most of the guys just one way,” Joy said.
All county teams will see scrimmage action against other teams this week. Both Pettus and Skidmore-Tynan will be on the road in three-way scrimmages.
