“We made strides. There is no doubt we got better, almost on a daily basis. But we still have quite a way to go to be at the level we want to be at. We don’t want to settle for average,” he said.
The gold team defeated the purple team 17-10 last Tuesday in the annual spring game to end spring practice.
Rogers is installing the spread offense he employed as offensive coordinator at Griffin, which went 15-0 and won the Class AAAA state title in 2013.
There were flashes of the potential the new offense can provide in the spring game, with both teams hitting on a few big plays. But there were also a total of seven turnovers in the game, showing that the players still have a lot to learn.
“We had some busted plays on both offense and defense. Turnovers happen. You don’t want that many, obviously, but some of that came from using four quarterbacks throughout spring practice,” Rogers said. “We’ll probably whittle that down to a couple of guys during our summer workouts and camps, and they’ll get better with the work.”
