I was going to do this earlier but decided not to. Then I've seen a couple people inquiring about their teams, so i figured why not put it all in one place. So what's everyone's thoughts about their teams after seeing them in pads?? (BTW, I'm not looking for an argument of who is right and wrong, I just would like to know what y'all think. This is a Homer thread for sure!)
ill start it off with Lumberton. I think we may surprise people this year. We started practice off with the ole Oklahoma drill which I figured only WOS was still man enough to do. But it sure was nice to see some hitting. We will have a true pocket passer this year, assuming we will utilize him. Ward looked like a BEAST in Oklahoma (keep in mind our practice was cut short so I didn't get to really see much.) Conway is looking like a good back up, so the future looks bright with him and the qb coming back next year. We will have two big targets at TE and WR. And offensive line has some pretty good size as well!! I didn't get to see defense a lot since we didn't get to do team defense so I can't really comment much there. But we have decent size there as well. Barely anybody if any is going both ways so we should have fresh legs on the field at all times. This SHOULD work in our favor if we don't have many injuries. Mentally this is going to help tremendously. We have players focusing on their positions for 3 hours straight every day at practice without switching over to the other side of the ball like we used to. No reason for mental mistakes this year. Overall, based on last years games we lost which were close, and the fact that we fumbled a LOT, if we can minimize that then playoffs are not out of the question for L Town. 3rd place isn't unreachable either (I know I'll catch some crap about that statement.)
on a side note, I also keep up with silsbee pretty close. I've been going to their practice in the mornings and Lumberton in the evening. I'll leave the details to a silsbee native but I will say that Adonis is looking like the same beast we've seen the last two years plus a few more pounds of muscle, Barnes is barnes, and y'all will have at least two other threats at receiver as well. Collins has some good size and will make good decisions. Not entirely sure about him just yet, but I would be hopeful if I was a tiger.
Thats all for now, now let's hear about yalls teams!!
