Piketon @ Minford scrimmage 8/10/18

Post by mlittle » Fri Aug 10, 2018 7:08 pm

Minford puts together a nice drive on their first 10 plays and score on the 10th play of the drive on about a 10 yard out. Now Piketon’s offense will take the field

Just a scrimmage but have to wonder is Minford that much improved or Piketon not up to snuff because they've got some players on the offensive side and for them not to be moving the ball makes me wonder.

Piketon didn’t look good at all. I know it’s just the first scrimmage but they look soft on both sides of the ball. Minford looked to have a few solid skill players and moved the ball really well

Not good considering Piketon does have the players to be able to move the ball and struggling like that against a team that will go .500 isn't a good sign. Sounds like Piketon is going to have to go back to the drawing board.

I agree. We were missing our #1 receiver but still had enough to move the ball better.

Was definitely a rough first scrimmage, but it was exactly that, a first scrimmage. Hopefully see some quick improvements for our second scrimmage this coming Friday

Piketon lost a lot from last year but it’s a scrimmage and they will get it going. As for Minford they have some good players back one being inside linebacker (Luke lindamood) that led team in tackles! So Minford went with volgolsong-Lewis? This is going to start some noise but hope they get thru it and carry this on to next game up!

Maybe someone else can clear it up on who started. I know they had a lefty in there a lot. I thought he started but maybe not. Both quarterbacks looked solid

My biggest take away was the improvement of the offensive line. I know it was one scrimmage but compared to last year much much better up front. Add in a very skilled running back quick strong and top end fast should make for a great year running the ball. Both the QBs looked really good I believe Kelly started but they spilt the 10 play series 5 plays each I believe and spilt the down and distance. Defense looked very good and few blown coverages but they will be fine. Hated to see Darius Jordan sidelined with a injury hopefully everything goes well with his recovery he would’ve have been one the best players in the conference on both sides of the ball.

Why aren’t the Piketon kids coming out for football?
Coach Gullion seems to do a nice job there.

So you think your team will run a 2 QB system? If so you think it will workout? Jordan out until baseball, hate that for the kid or any kid at that!! Yes Jordan would have had a good senior season.

Could be something, may be nothing. Rumor is a few of the kids wanted to focus on “other” sports. If true it sounds like some kids are getting bad advice from Somewhere. Not sure your senior season is the time for that but to each their own I guess.

From what I'm hearing, there is definitely something going on with Piketon, and it's not just kids wanting to focus on "other" sports. That's just the cop-out answer that ppl are hoping others buy into.

No I don’t! I think a starter will be named and hopefully the other will contribute at wr because either one could be a great WR. And yes hopefully he is back for baseball, great kid that comes from a great family.

In your first statement you suggested that there was more going on than any of us know and now you’re implying you actually know. I’m curious what you know or have heard. Regardless of the reason the kids aren’t playing and we have to deal with it. Doesn’t matter why right now

You're exactly right doesn't matter why right now. They're playing with the hand they've dealt themselves, and I won't be airing any Piketon laundry if that's what you were hoping, lol.

I am not sure of Piketon's experience on the line, but they looked much smaller and not as strong as I have seen them be up front in the past.

Minford looked much improved on the line compared to the past 2 years. They need to be able to run the ball effectively (as we saw in the game vs Logan last year) to be successful on offense this year.

I thought both Minford QB's looked good but I still think the Lewis kid throws a much better ball in general. I think the things that impressed me the most was the Wiget kid and how shifty and fast he looked. He looks like he put on quite a bit of muscle too.

The defense looked much improved. LB and DB play was way better than I saw the past 2 years and the D line looked very good.

All in all there was much more enthusiasm and I think that with Matiz coming back and the addition of the McCray to the staff will be a big help.

As a head coach you are only as good as your staff who is teaching techniques to the players. I think this is by far the best staff Ruby has had since taking over.

i agree, the weight program turned a 180 this offseason thanks to a couple of coach’s. It’s nice seeing lineman move people around. And Matiz, Gaines and Frazie are going to make a great defensive coaching core the 3. Hopefully the offense follows suit with the improvement.
