WOODBURN, Ore.–It was their best 7-on-7 and what a way to end their 7-on-7 with Team Camp coming up next week at home.
“It’s good, it’s always good to see your team click like we did,” said Quinn Legner. “I mean we have a lot of young guys, but they’re stepping up and making plays so that’s always a good thing.”
Young guys like Elijah Nolan who’s entering his sophomore season, knows that these past weeks have really been helpful for them to meet the standards of that of the older guys and the expectations of their coaches around them as the team continues to improve as a unit.
“It’s been really nice because it’s nice to step up to where the older guys are at these last couple of years,” said Nolan. “To run the routes that they run and getting the experience that the other kids have, it really helps.
“I think we’ve been improved, at the beginning we had a lot of things we had to work on and we still do, but not as nearly as many as we did at the beginning.”
It plays to the idea of how the coaching staff helps teach the kids learn what to do, which is especially helpful for the younger athletes out on the gridiron.
“It’s big, it really is. Our coaches do a really good job breaking it down for us,” said Legner. “Like I said, the young guys are picking it up really well, so honestly I think by doubles we’ll be dialed in and ready to do stuff we should be doing mid-season maybe.”
With about a month to go before the start of the season, confidence is already there as the Cascade Football team gears up for another deep playoff run in 2017.
“I’m excited. I think this is going to be a good year honestly,” said Legner.
