|Parish teams end spring drills|
Ferriday High and Vidalia High ended their spring drills with intrasquad football games.
Recently, the Louisiana High School Athletic Association ruled that high school could no longer scrimmage other schools in the spring.
If the Ferriday spring game is any indication, the Trojans will be throwing the ball a lot more in 2012.
"We're going to throw it more," said Ferriday head coach Richard Oliver. "I thought our quarterbacks did a good job."
Black team quarterback Shannon Morales was intercepted by Jalen Neal on a long pass down the left sideline on the first play of the contest.
Miguel Paige hit Allen Cumings for a long gain on the Gold's third possession, but an interception by Dontrell Domino turned the ball over to the Black.
The only score of the first half came on a 12-yard TD run by Domino. Domino scored the only touchdown of the second half.
"Dontrell did a good job running the football," Oliver said. "He was a pleasant surprise for us. We knew what he could do on the defensive side. I thought all the kids gave a good effort. We saw a lot of bright spots, but we're still a work in progress. We just want to get better."
After finishing up last spring with 23 players, Oliver is happy to have 48 players at the end of this spring.
"That's really going to help us with depth," he said.
Ferriday will return to the weight room next month and compete in Natchez High's 7-on-7 football league, as well as attending other camps.
At Vidalia, Viking head coach Gary Paul Parnham kept the spring game basic.
"We've put in a new offense and want to see how well they have adapted to it," Parnham said.
Trashone Mays scored the first touchdown of the spring game, going 43 yards around the left end.
The White team led 13-0 at halftime as Johnny Anderson recovered a fumble by the Blue team on the Blue 1-yard line and got the call on the next play, taking it into the end zone.
Gerardo Gonzales kicked the extra point.
Each team scored once in the second half as Duntrell Saul scored on a run for the Blue team and Jontarious Townsend threw a touchdown pass to Zalen Parker for the White team.
"It was a good day and the kids enjoyed it," Parnham said. "We had a few bright spots. We've got some freshmen who looked real good and will contribute next year."
Parnham said a few players were affected by the heat. Logan Owens injured his knee in the game.
Parnham said Vidalia will hold free physicals May 31 at 7 a.m. in the school gym.
"We'll get back in the weight room Monday with our summer conditioning program before we get back after it," he said.
