 Casady opens its football season Friday at home against Southwest Preparatory Conference foe Holland Hall.

 Last season, the Cyclones went 5-5, missing the playoffs in favor of Holland Hall after losing the regular-season matchup 41-18.

 Casady returns a strong cast this season, including Oklahoma commitment Josh Wariboko-Alali, a 6-foot-3, 310-pound junior offensive lineman.

 ST. MARY OFFENSE LOOKING TO IMPROVE

Mount St. Mary coach Chris Stiles wants to see better ball security this week against Newcastle after the Rockets struggled in last week's scrimmage against Oklahoma Christian School.

“Offensively they gave us a lot of looks and a lot of stunts and blitzes, and I'm glad we saw all of that,” Stiles said. “It helps us, but we were certainly challenged in moving the football and had some turnovers. But all in all, everything is correctable and we expect to see great improvement this week.”

Stiles said he was pleased with the defense, particularly defensive linemen Jesse Turner and Josh Maddox.

But the focus this week will remain on improving the offense.

“Running the flexbone and running the triple-option offense, it's execution, it's timing, it's repetition,” Stiles said. “We just keep doing what we do. We do very few things, but we've got to do them very well.”

 QB BATTLE ON AT WESTMOORE

The quarterback battle at Westmoore between Devon Navarro and Bryson Lee is still underway.

Westmoore coach Billy Langford said one quarterback has pulled in front of the other during practice, but he has yet to make any decision until after the Jaguars scrimmage at Mustang on Thursday.
