Sure, there were things T.R. Miller Tigers football coach Jamie Riggs would have liked to have gotten in during his two weeks of spring practice.
Practice provided some surprises. One of those was the performance turned in by sophomore offensive lineman Marlon Alvarado.
T.R. Miller will return plenty of experience next season at the skills spots.
T.R. Miller has to replace its leading wide receiver, Jacob Salter, but the Tigers should have plenty of options there led by Mikel Riggs and Javaris Drakeford.
Tight end could be one spot up for grabs going into next season.
On the defensive side of the ball, Riggs said while his team was a little short on linemen during the spring, the Tigers also had some people perform well.
At linebacker, Riggs said Justin Gomez, Javaris Drakeford and Wade McCall all stood out.
In the secondary, the Tigers were without Laine Lucas (basketball) and Antonio Gomez (injured).
The T.R. Miller coach said the one area where he wished there was more time to devote time to is special teams.
