This was a full-field 7 on 7 going the with the 100 yard distance and from what I could tabulate it was Atkins 3 scores and Grimsley 1….I spoke with new offensive coordinator Neal Mitchell after it was all over, and the Whirlies were doing their sprints, and he said that sounded like a fair assessment, 3 to 1…..
As one of our readers posted earlier and as they were coming out of the 7 on 7, there seemed to be a lot of positive energy flowing at today’s workout….
The field looked great, possibly the best it has ever looked, with bright green grass and bright white lines and things will be be looking up for the Whirlies, but it will take some time….Dominique McNair is going to be a player, but he will need some help…..DJ Reader will get some help up front, when Charlie Jones returns to the Grimsley football program, after a one-year absence…Jones is about 6’5 and weighs at least 275 or 280 and the thing I always noticed about Charlie, is that he has quick feet,…..Real big feet, but very quick feet…..Get them moving and maybe Charlie can convince Brian Doss to come out for the team…..Doss is very athletic and he has athletic smarts…..(Played for Lewis and Kiser, hasn’t played for Grimsley football yet.)
I saw Coach Edwards/Officer Edwards out there today….His son will be playing for the Grimsley JV’s this year and wearing #55….Mr. Manley, also known as Keitih’s dad, he was there and he has a son that will be another one of those big Grimsley offensive linemen…..
All in all a good day, that closed with some positives and the Whirlies won’t go back to work, until Monday afternoon…..
