Morgan anxious for season two
August 13, 2008
Chris Morgan used to get giddy the night before football practice opened when he was a teenager.
That hasn’t changed as Morgan begins his second straight season in charge of his alma mater, the South Tahoe High Vikings.
“I feel like a little kid the day before practice starting. I wish I could put the gear on,” Morgan said. “I’m always excited about the first day of football.”
Morgan should have more to be enthuised about as practice opens today with workouts scheduled for 8 a.m. and 11 a.m.
“Last year from the first game to the last game, we improved greatly,” Morgan said. “Now we expect come game one, we should be further ahead of where we were last year. Our overall knowledge of the game should be much improved.”
Seven STHS starters return on offense and five are back on defense, giving Morgan continuity at a variety of positions. But his main concern is how many of those returners will be asked to stay on the field continuously.
