Coaches happy with 1st glance in football scrimmage

East Hall coach Bryan Gray and Chestatee coach Stan Luttrell are both encouraged by what they saw in their teams’ scrimmage on Thursday at War Eagle Stadium.

The goal for both coaches was to get a look at as many players as possible in the game to see what players work best together and look for areas to improve upon. The coaches didn’t keep score in the game.

“The biggest thing is it’s a good measuring stick for where we are now,” Luttrell said.

Gray and Luttrell are encouraged by their teams’ performances but know that they have issues to address before they open the regular season.

“We’re just going to have to find the best offensive line and defensive line and get them on the field,” Gray said, “I thought our secondary, our corners and safety played well tonight.”

Luttrell also feels that certain positions were stronger than others throughout the game.

“I feel like the strength of our team is up front on both sides of the ball,” Luttrell stated, “I think we need to continue to mature as a team. We have to get better at the basics.”

Overall, the coaches look forward to getting in good practice time over the next week or two and believe that they learned a good amount from the scrimmage.

“Scrimmages are never pretty,” Gray said, “We are encouraged by it overall.”

Most of the remaining schools are playing in scrimmages tonight.

East Hall faces Dawson County in the season opener on Aug. 24 in Dawsonville. Chestatee faces archrival North Hall to open the season Aug. 31 at War Eagle Stadium.
