Kingfisher looking to fill line, secondary spots
KINGFISHER — Despite an hour delay because of heavy rain and lightning, Kingfisher managed to get its spirited three-hour opening practice in the books in unusually cool weather Tuesday morning.
About 50 kids came out for practice, though coach Jeff Myers expects more out as school starts Wednesday. As for the first day of practice, it’s about conditioning and learning.
“We throw so much information at them, it’s a lot of standing around and getting mental reps more than anything,” Myers said.
Myers and his staff will focus on shoring up several spots on the roster, including the offensive line where there are question marks at several spots.
“Offensive and defensive line is a big question mark for us,” Myers said. “We have some great kids battling for some spots there and in the secondary. We have some talent there but if anyone goes down we’ll be scrambling.”
Returning quarterback Derrick Patterson also looked good in his first day back at the helm of the offense.
“He looks very good,” Myers said. “He’s going to be a special player for us.”
