Leopards complete spring work, turn eyes to summer
BY CHRIS BRIDGES
When comparing his first spring practice at Banks County High School to his second, Leopard head coach Blair Armstrong said there was a big difference.
The players were more accustomed to Armstrong’s overall methods and what the coaching staff expected from them. As a result, things ran much smoother the second time around.
“Offensively compared to last year we were light years ahead,” the coach said Sunday after breaking down the spring scrimmage.
Chuck Hudson will be the new offensive coordinator for BCHS, but he has worked with Armstrong for several years and was the offensive line coach for the Leopards this past season.
“Our offense is going to change a little, but our overall blocking schemes will be the same,” Armstrong said. “We will have a new quarterback and that is something we will have to work on before the start of the new season.”
Alex Banks, who was the starter for the junior varsity in 2007, took plenty of snaps in spring drills. Chris Porter and Brett Armour only recently joined the football team following the completion of baseball season. Despite missing several of the members of the baseball team for some of spring practice, Armstrong said overall things went well.
