Westmoore: Looking for balance...
By Justin Hite
The running game was supposed to be a staple for the Westmoore Jaguars this season. So far it is, but they need more.
In each of Westmoore’s first two games, the Jaguars ran for more than 200 yards on the ground, including more than 300 in Week 1 against Moore. But in Week 3, things changed.
Norman North shut down the run and challenged the Jaguars.
“They were just daring us to throw the football and we couldn’t complete enough passes to spread them back out,” Westmoore coach Billy Langford said. “When they’re sitting there playing 7 and 8 guys in the box and daring you to throw it, you’ve got to be able to throw it. We weren’t able to do that consistently.”
Westmoore (1-2) managed only 60 yards on the ground and, for the first time all season, threw the ball more than it handed it off.
“We weren’t able to run the football like we needed to and our passing game, at this point in the season, is not where it needs to be as far as being able to take advantage of people when they crowd the box,” Langford said. “… We didn’t really execute what we needed to do.”
