Rush Springs running dry after this season
By Zach West
With 15 seniors taking up 19 starting spots, Rush Springs has never had such a strong senior class. When you add in that most of those seniors have started for several years and have only lost five games since the sixth grade, you have a coach’s dream. For Redskins head coach Barry Foster, however, it can also be somewhat of a coach’s nightmare. Especially when only 28 total players will suit up for the Redskins in the fall.
“That’s the lowest it’s been in years,” said head coach Barry Foster. “A lot of smaller schools we’ve played have experienced that, be we haven’t – until now. We usually average 35 to 36 every year. Our seniors make up over half our team.”
With so few younger players, Foster said it can be difficult to practice effectively, because the talent level differential between the first and second teams is so wide.
