Quarterback issue not settled
The decision on who will be the starting quarterback for Centennial won’t be made until after Friday’s scrimmage, Spartans’ coach Kyle Geller said.
The play of juniors Kyle Burns, Hunter Prescher and sophomore David Robinson are making things difficult of Geller. In 72 offensive plays during Friday’s inter-squad scrimmage the ball wasn’t turned over once.
“I told the quarterbacks they were making it awfully hard on me,” Geller aid. “They all performed well in the scrimmage. It is all going to boil down to the scrimmage on Friday. Probably going to play all three of them in the non-district games.”
The Spartans face Mansfield Legacy on the road at 7 p.m. Friday in their lone scrimmage. Centennial opens the regular season at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 1 hosting Saginaw Boswell.
Geller said he was pleased with first week of practice. After one week of drills it is clear to the coaching staff that some players aren’t cut out to play on both offense and defense.
“After the first scrimmage we had to shift some guys around because some just can’t play offense and defense,” Geller said.
Chris Moseley, a move-in from North Crowley, has burst on the scene. Geller said that Mosley has shown things that he ca do with the ball at receiver and slot back. Another newcomer, Brayden Lee, a move-in from Richland, is performing well at receiver and safety.
In preparation for Friday’s scrimmage, the coaching staff will ran this week’s practices under the same structure as game week structure - practices on Monday and Tuesday and light practice on Wednesday and morning walk today.
