Denton Ryan and Coppell are no slouches. Actually it's kind of odd seeing Ryan back in the same district after more than a decade removed. That will be tough! As for non district, that's interesting that we play Ennis, I can't remember ever playing them, at least not in a loooong time.
HC Miller and OC Bixey were formally introduced at the booster club meeting last night. How exciting. Coach Miller told us last night how for the past 12 years Katy was in the state game an average of every other year and last years 13-1 record at Katy did not sit well with their fans and he is amazed at the fact that we still love our Farmers and are committed to our Farmer players. He told us he expects hard work and discipline from our players and if we'll (parents) just "feed em and get em some rest, he'll take care of the rest".
He also commented on how hard they work to ensure we are turning out good men, future dads and productive members of society. I like that.
OC Bixey also commented and was introduced. He didnt talk much about scheme but we already know we're going to run a lot of I formation and pro set style offense. We'll have the tight end and fullback back in the offense and only use 2 WR's, occasionally going to 3 wides and rarely 4 wides. Thats ok too as we showed last year we have some players that can play. Hopefully, some of the lower skill level players can help get the starters ready to go.
The new coaches seem to be relying on the senior leaders to get things done and they realize their value to the team. He said the upper classmen (read seniors) are going to be a big part of what we do. Its nice to know since they are the most physically gifted and mature of all our players.
I like what I'm hearing from the field-house. Speaking of field-house, HC Miller said, "this field-house is beautiful and most colleges would be glad to have it as a recruiting tool but field-houses dont win games, players do".
Go Farmers and Go Coach Miller and welcome Coach Bixey. Oh, one more thing. We'll play Arlington High at UTA's new stadium next fall! Go Farmers.
