After improving its win total by two games last season, the Meadowview Christian football team is hoping to continue to build on its progress.
This summer, workouts at the school continue, despite low turnout numbers.
“They are going pretty good right now. We don’t have a whole lot of kids coming at the same time. We need to get everybody in there together,” Meadowview head coach Lebo Jones said. “We’ve got a lot of kids coming at different times. Hopefully after the Fourth of July we will be able to get everybody coming at the same time so we can get some more stuff done.”
Other schools in the area have participated in 7-on-7 football drills, but Meadowview has stuck with simply lifting weights this offseason.
“We have basically been just lifting weights and doing conditioning,” Jones said.
Meadowview’s low numbers can probably be attested to other sports going on, along with it being summer.
“A lot of kids are playing baseball,” Jones said when asked why he thinks his numbers are low. “We’ve had some kids that are not sure they are going to play this year or not.”
Despite the low turnout, Jones says he can definitely tell the difference in the players that have been at the workouts.
“We’ve still got a lot of work to do. We have had a little trouble getting everybody coming as much as I want them to,” Jones said. “The ones that have been coming have gotten stronger. No doubt.”
