The ReSporter: Hey Coach, how has this week’s practices been going?

Coach Fields: “Very well this week, this week has been very intense, they have had focus, and they are ready to play the game.”

The ReSporter: What do you concentrate on this time of the season in your practices?

Coach Fields: “We try to eliminate our mental mistakes.”

The ReSporter: What does that mean….give us some examples of mental mistakes.

Coach Fields: “Missed blocking assignments and working on tackling and getting in position to have better angles. We still have not played our best game of the year.”

The ReSporter: What has been your best game so far this season?

Coach Fields: “Our best game?…Maybe the OLH game and the New Braunfels game we played pretty good.”

The ReSporter: Tell us about this game coming up with Winston.

Coach Fields: “This is probably one of the weakest Winston teams we have faced. But, we will want to play this game with intensity and become a springboard into our playoff season.”

The ReSporter: Are there any nuggets you add this time of year as you prepare for your next season?

Coach Fields: “We will probably be playing Logos again and it is really too late for drawing anything up on the board and change anything. We do have a couple of players that can come up and play defense for us but the main thing we will focus on is being sure we don’t set them up for any injuries.”

The ReSporter: How will you get the players up for this Friday’s game?

Coach Fields: “That want be that hard since this will be Senior Night for five of our players. This group of students are the last ones that had a chance to play during our Championship season. So, they will be up and the rest of the guys will be wanting to play well for them.”

The ReSporter: Thanks Coach, we look forward to next week as we talk about your next opponent in the playoffs.
