Coaches Corner with Bracken’s Hosea Stredic
The ReSporter had some time to talk with Head Coach Hosea Stredic at Bracken Christian after their first loss of the season this week.
The ReSporter: What will you do to get the younger players on your squad ready for their first road game with The Winston?
Coach Stredic: “I will let them know that although we are going for a ride, it is just another room in our big house. It is our home wherever we go and play.”
The ReSporter: How will you go through your week realizing that you will have to address many of the things that went wrong in the game with Austin Hill Country?
Coach Stredic: “We will practice as planned….Get back into our routine, and we will be fine.”
The ReSporter: What do you know about Winston and how do you match up with them?
Coach Stredic: “Winston have two very quick backs, if not contained and tackled, then they will hurt you…..but that’s with most teams in six-man football. If you think about it, it is the same in eleven man football also.”
The ReSporter: Where are you in getting your full offensive game into gear as your district games approach?
Coach Stredic: “Right now we are at maybe 60% of our offense, we will be in full force by the time we play Austin Veritas in week six.”
The ReSporter: After a loss like last Friday, what do you go back and go over with the team to them back on track?
Coach Stredic: “Last week’s loss, really is not as bad as it may appear…Sometimes in life things don’t go right and you just make sure to learn from it and make the necessary adjustments and get back in the game.”
The ReSporter: What is more important to you as a Head Coach, the defense or offense and why?
Coach Stredic: “I’d have to say it is about even…most people say defense wins games and I agree somewhat, but a good offense can keep your opponent’s offense off the field and if they don’t have the ball they can’t score. On the over hand, if your defense is popping the opponent in the mouth then the opponent may not want to come on the field. Doesn’t make sense….huh!”
The ReSporter: Thanks Coach and good luck this Friday against The Winston. Go Warriors!!
