The Hilltoppers are back on the gridiron, working in spring practice and getting their feet under them for a new fall campaign and coach William Cook said things have been going smoothly.
“It’s looking good,” Cook said.”Their off-season conditioning is working and in practice they’re working hard. That’s all you can ask for.”
The Toppers will field another young team with the loss of nine seniors at graduation, “but those younger players have a year of experience under their belt,” Cook added.
Currently, they are working without several members who are in playoffs with baseball, but that just opens up more opportunities to gain extra work.
“It gives some of the other guys a chance to get extra reps,” Cook said.
Hitting the field
The Toppers will be in action Thursday in Shannon as they participate in a spring jamboree with the Red Raiders and New Albany.
There will be abbreviated time for JV and varsity will play two full quarters each of offense and defense without the kicking game.
