Ed Memorial: Still looking for vocal leader...
By Robert Przybylo
Edmond Memorial coach Justin Merideth’s mantra for the season has been: “we’ll go as far as the offensive line will take us.”
He might be right, but I’m always interested in the type of leadership a team has more than anything.
With the Bulldogs, I see potential leaders. But through the second scrimmage, Merideth admitted nobody is stepping up to be the vocal ringleader.
Especially on defense where I feel a vocal presence must be there.
It’s pretty clear that linebacker Adrian Shoecraft will anchor the front seven. With the way he plays, he sticks out like a sore thumb. Merideth has raved about Shoecraft the whole time, and his opinion hasn’t changed yet.
But right now, it appears as though cornerback Nelson Medeiros is going to be the guy that is stepping up.
He’s not a bad choice and will lead the secondary. Feel a unit responds better when there is that voice that is leading the charge.
Memorial is in a great spot heading into Thursday’s battle with Southmoore. The SaberCats are the “it” team right now. But with the wealth of experience coming back for the Bulldogs, yea, wouldn’t count ‘em out.
