Bearcats crisp in first practice in pads

Bearcat_logoSaturday morning, the Bearcats took the field in pads for the first time of the season in front of a good sized crowd at Centennial Field. Led by Head Coach Jeff Littleton, the Bearcats are looking to improve from last year’s 6-5 record and began with what appeared to be a crisp & lively practice. This will be Coach Littleton’s third season in the Purple & Gold and he feels confident that this is the deepest team he’s had since arriving in Bainbridge.

From my vantage point, the Bearcats look to be a lot bigger, in numbers and in size, than they have been in the past. It was hard not to notice some of the big boys working hard down in the trenches and feel good about the Bearcats’ running attack in 2015. It also appeared that defensively, the Bearcats will be very competitive as that side of the ball really impressed me with how they seemed to know exactly what they were doing. I didn’t notice many times where the coaches were getting on to the players for not being where they needed to be on certain plays and in certain situations. All-in-all, I left the first practice of the season impressed with the Bearcats and very optimistic heading into the 2015 season.
