Moore looking for replacements at most positions
When Moore holds its first practice today at 3 p.m., the Lions will be looking at a lot of different players at a lot of different positions.
A 1-9 season last year was highlighted only by the fact that the Lions beat new-rival-on-the-block Southmoore 29-26 in week nine. This year, coach Scott Myers hopes for and expects more success. And a wealth of young players will get their chance to make an impact.
As usual, Moore has its share of good athletes. Players like Jonathan Webb and Taylor Gardner gave the Lions offensive punch last year, but new faces at quarterback, running back and receiver means finding replacements during preseason practice will be crucial. Of course, it could be by committee in some cases.
Myers felt like the addition of Southmoore really cut into the talent pool. Still, he doesn’t see that being a problem forever.
“I can say, in two or three years we’ll come back strong,” he said. “It’s going to take a year or two to adjust, to get our junior highs and feeder-schools all on the same page.”
Check back this evening for a post-practice update on the Lions and see what Myers has to say about his leading candidates at QB and RB.
