Tigers have solid practice session despite rainout

Published 8:54 pm Wednesday, July 23, 2008

Despite inclement weather cutting the weekly practice session short, head football coach Tom Causey reported being pleased with the Tigers’ efforts Tuesday.

“We were having a great day. We’d been out there about an hour when it started lightning,” Causey said. “We got a ton of reps in a short period of time. We looked really good. We were moving around pretty good.”

Even though he lost approximately an hour of practice time with his team due to the rainfall, Causey’s spirits were not dampened.

“You hate to lose any time you can get them together like that. But it’s not that big a deal,” he said.

While he believes his team has shown improvement in certain areas, Causey said his team still has some work to do.

“I don’t think you’re ever where you want to be,” Causey said. “There’re a lot of things that need to improve. But there’re a lot of things that are better.”

He also reported that the defense has responded well to new coordinator Rudy Griffin.

“They’re getting after it,” the head coach said.

He will get to see how much progress his defense has made when it takes the field for 7-on-7 competition in Thomasville Monday before hosting its own scrimmage Tuesday.

“We want to see great competition. We want to go out and play every snap,” Causey said. “We’ll find out a lot about our conditioning.”
