|Ferriday completes spring drills|
Ferriday High head football coach Freddie Harrison saw some answers to some questions and still has some questions following a scrimmage with Wossman High and Franklin Parish High Friday in Monroe to complete the Trojans' spring practice.
"We still need to find out if we are mentally tough and do we have enough character to be a good football team," Harrison said. "We still need to find our identity. When we find our identity, then we can start gelling as a team."
Harrison has a big void to fill at quarterback after losing Kendrick Harris and a running back with the graduation of Matthew Smith.
Sophomores Rodney Lawson and freshman ZvRaine Thompson worked at quarterback, while sophomores Bobby Madison and Nieco Amado got most of the carries.
"Our quarterbacks looked fair, I'm not upset about it, but at the same time I'm not thrilled," Harrison said. "We have two young guys with a lot of room for improvement, but they have a lot of potential. Once they get some game experience on Friday nights, it will help them become a lot better."
Madison had one of the longest runs in the scrimmage, breaking loose on about a 40-yard gain.
"Bobby looked real good, but needs to work on some little things, such as cutting back and finding the lane," Harrison said. "He's a bruising back and a hard-hosed kid. He did a good job on defense, as well. Nieco is a change of pace back. We just have to get him to having the same amount of confidence running the ball as Bobby has when he is carrying it."
Harrison said the scrimmage was a reward for the players for the 15 days spent practicing during the last month.
"They got a chance to hit somebody else," Harrison said. "Now we'll look at the films and evaluate some positions. We've got some high points and low points. Overall I was pleased with our defense and how they went through their assignments. I'm very excited about the progress of some of the young kids. We're looking forward to getting back out there in the summer."
