The 2015 football season for Apalachee High School was tough from start to finish.
When the dust settled, the Wildcats were 0-10 and at the bottom of the Region 8-AAAAA ladder. With a new season now just a few months away, AHS began spring practice Monday with a renewed sense of hope as it prepares for its final season in the current region setup.
“Going into this season, we have to get better on the offensive line,” said second-year coach Steve Sims. “We need more depth and we should be deeper than last year. We have a few more kids out.”
Generating some level of offensive success will benefit Apalachee’s defense which often ran out of gas after a half in 2015, its coaches said.
“Depth will help our defense play four quarters,” Sims said. “We were physically spent last season after two quarters. Having more depth is going to help a lot of issues.”
Being able to secure depth on both the offensive and defensive sides of the football is a must.
“I do think we can do that and I do think we can improve this season,” Sims “That’s our goal for 2016.”
