The Ada High football team wrapped up spring football workouts this week, and head coach Chris Berus said he saw improvement every step of the way through the five practice sessions.
“We’ve progressed every day of the five days. We’re a lot better today than we were yesterday, and we’re a lot, lot better than we were on Day 1,” Berus said. “I’m very pleased that our kids learned a lot of football during these five days.”
During the last 15 minutes of the final workout Thursday afternoon at Norris Field, the Cougars ran a “two-minute” offense with several running backs rotating in and out and quarterbacks Jake Shannon and Zac Carroll taking most of the snaps.
That stretch included several nice first-down plays and a number of good defensive stops.
Berus said he’ll have to watch film from the spring drills to get a fair evaluation of the X’s and O’s of the workouts, but he has liked what he’s seen from his first look at the 2018 Cougars so far.
“As far as our want-to and our excitement about being here together, that’s exactly where it needs to be,” he said.
