  • Apache continue momentum at practice

    Despite the poor weather the Apache saw another turn out of close to 40 at this week’s practice. The Team enjoyed the benefits of the good turn out with a scrimmage of over 40 minutes at the end of practice. Coaches Hopkins, Proctor, Rogers and Hoyte were in force again to help Coach Herod improve on last week’s experience.

    “We are working to a progressive plan with the team and trying to move them forward at the right speed to peak in time for their games” said Coach Herod. “We are lucky that we have two very experienced Lineman in Gary Gardener and Lee Cook along with a veteran Quarterback in Ashley Richer to give confidence and direction to our offense”.

    Whereas last week the offense struggled to move the football a long install period leading into the scrimmage saw the offense mount several long drives and score 3 touchdowns on the defense. The Aztecs Youth all time leading rusher, Stefan Williams, was the catalyst behind many of the long gains on the ground thanks to some good blocking up front.

    “We are heading in the right direction and the rookies are improving every week” stated Offensive Line Coach Nick Rogers. “There is still a lot to cover with them but I think if we can keep this momentum going we’ll be force in the league in 2011”.

    The Apache are preparing for a series of friendly games against future rivals the South Wales Warriors and Bournemouth Bobcats with the hope of entering the league in 2011. It’s never too late to join, simply contact one of the coaches from the bottom of the page to express your interest.
