The first summer workouts for new W.S. Neal head football coach Kevin Jordan have been busy but good.
Jordan was hired June 11 and has been catching up on administrative duties as well as coaching. He said the transition of the normal things you would do as the head football coach or the athletic director has been busy because it was so late in the process when he got the job.
Jordan said he has had a lot of support from the administration.
Jordan and the Eagles worked out three days a week in the summer working out Mondays Tuesdays and Thursdays from roughly 7:30 to 10:30 a.m. and were averaging 30-32 player with some days having some players that were not at one workout or the other.
Jordan said he has been pleased with what he has been seeing from his team in his first year as coach.
While there are not a lot of upperclassmen, they have been encouraging the younger players, Jordan said.
W.S. Neal attended one 7-on-7 summer passing camp this summer in Flomaton.
Jordan added that players might work about 20 minutes on a day on 7-on-7 and you cant get good at throwing the ball or defending the pass with that amount of time.
As of last Wednesday, Jordan was giving his team off the rest of the week before they started official practice this past Monday.
As athletic director and head football coach at W.S. Neal, Jordan has named one new coach and other former coaches have new titles.
Roberts will also serve as head girls basketball coach.
The players are really excited and looking forward to fall practice and it will be.
Jordan said he is also exited about the new coaching staff.
