WSN looks for success
The week coach Andro Williams has anticipated is here, as the Eagles will square off this Friday night with Southern Choctaw and Thomasville, in a pre-season jamboree game at home.
The Neal team has been preparing for the past few months to establish the tools that would be essential to having a successful season.
With Williams at the helm, the Eagles have been off to a solid start in practice.
The second year WSN coach, has been developing the offense, defense, and special teams to handle the tasks in front of them this season.
One of the factors that he has stressed with his team is the mental game that they will have to bring to the field.
“We had a scrimmage on this past Friday during practice. We worked on a number of things. Due to the weather situation, we were unable to work on as much as I would have liked to with special teams and a few other areas, but the guys got some great work in and we able to accomplish a few things,” Williams said.
Going into Friday night, the WSN team will be working on correcting mistakes and polishing up.
“This week will offer us a chance to correct some mistakes and for the most part getting to work on mental wellness that we need to have on the field. I saw some things in this past week’s scrimmage that we can work on and improve but the guys done a really good job for the most part,” Williams said.
As with any team, the fundamentals are the part to making or breaking a team.
The Eagles will be working throughout the week to improve defensive and offensive blocking and executing each play as one unit.
“If we improve on these things and work as one unit, good things will happen for us,” Williams said.
“Going into this week’s jamboree game will give us an insight into how things are and what will need to be worked on. The Thomasville team is a good team. They will be running the ball on us and also going to the air. Southern Choctaw, on the other hand, will line up and just try to run it down your neck all night. This will give me the opportunity to observe how we are blocking on all ends, lining up, and making tackles. We need to execute on all of these ends to hold both of these teams back,” Williams said.
This Friday night, the WSN Eagles will face Thomasville in the first half. Southern Choctaw and Thomasville will square off in the second half. The younger JV, WSN team will take on Southern Choctaw for the final half.
The jamboree will take place in East Brewton on Friday, Aug. 24, at 7 p.m.
