Scrimmages this week

Paris vs Celina; week 1

Posted 2022-08-09 10:49:50, Post Count: 9

Celina looked pretty good in scrimmage against 6A Royse City. Good, not great.

Bulldogs have a good amount of speed. Their QB can scoot, and so could one of their receivers. Good size on the lines.

Dont know how it turned out officially, but Bobcats scored 3 times in live quarter and RC scored once.

Bobcats looked good in the secondary, apart from a busted 1-on-1 coverage on RC’s live-quarter TD. Receiver ran a great slant route and easily scored. Defensive line controlled the LOS for the most part, and RC’s big plays came on over-aggressiveness by the Bobcats young LB corps. I’ll take aggressiveness at this point over lack of athleticism/ability.

Bobcats defense can fly. They will be as tough as last year, especially as the year gets along.

Offensively, Celina ran the ball whenever and however they wanted. Offensive line has a lot of size again and we’re pretty athletic. Gayton at RB looked in mid-season form.

I was disappointed, overall, in the passing game. Feel like it should be further along. I don’t fully understand our passing concepts. We don’t have the personnel that can create enough separation on the route trees we seem to run.

We had lots of success, however, on play action, and quick hits out of full-house looks. Having Caden Mitchell back at TE/hybrid is going to be huge. Was a big contributor as a sophomore and did not play a year ago. He should touch the ball a ton this year.

Overall, Bobcats fans should be feeling pretty good after first scrimmage. Plenty of things to get sorted out, obviously, but the talent is there. Should not be any drop off from last years semifinal team.
