West Metro spring football roundup: Mustang
Having finally caught my breath from the wild two weeks of spring sports championships, I took some time to begin making the rounds at the West Metro spring football practices.
I made it to Mustang on Thursday, then Putnam City North and Yukon on Friday. I’ll hit Putnam City and PC West in the next couple days to finish off the tour.
With no further delay, here are some random observations from Bronco camp:
- While a current star receiver was missing (David Glidden), a former star receiver was on hand. Former Bronco Josh Cooper completed spring ball at Oklahoma State about a month ago, but he’s been getting some extra work going through receiving drills at Mustang. He has developed a lot physically since the last time I saw him up close, which was during spring practice in 2009 at OSU.
- As for Glidden, it’s only precautionary that he’s sitting out spring practice. He battled some shoulder soreness after baseball, and to get him well before summer camps, coach Ty Prestidge held him out of the five days of workouts last week.
- The Mustang offense will look a little more like the one you expect. The last two years have been a little different. In 2008, QB Kyle Webster was such a talented runner that he gave the offense a different feel. Last year, RB Daniel Farrow changed the offense entirely. The 2010 Broncos will have some good RBs, but no Farrow. And QB Brandon Taylor is much more suited to throw the ball 40 times a game than to throw 20 and run 20.
- On the topic of Taylor, he looks bigger than at the end of last season, which is saying a lot, because he was already a big kid at 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds. He has a cannon for a left arm, so if he keeps growing and can put up the type of numbers you expect out of a Mustang QB, he’ll have some big colleges following him around before long.
