CHHS JV fall to Carrol

Published 3:00 am Tuesday, September 15, 2015

The Charles Henderson High School Junior varsity team struggled to score points on Monday, losing to Carrol-Ozark 33-6.

The Trojans weren’t able to get on the board until the final minute, DQ Toney went up for a pass in the back corner of the end and dragged a foot before falling out of bounds.

Even though that was the only highlight of the night, Trojan head coach Brad McCoy liked what he saw out of his junior varsity squad.

“We scored at the end and that was a positive. We are going to take any positive that we can get,” McCoy said. “It’s good that they can get out and play because they don’t get these reps in practice.”

It’s not about wins and loses for this JV team; it’s about getting better as a unit and that is something the coaching staff believes is happening on a game-by-game basis..

“When you isolate the mistakes it can look bad. I think a lot of times I saw kids running towards the football,” McCoy said. “What a catch Toney made in the end zone. That was a big time catch. I think you try and take the positives; you don’t dwell on the negatives and you work towards getting better next week.”

The program brought to Charles Henderson by McCoy is centered around getting better as a unit. Every game the Trojans play at any level is helping them get better in the future and preparing them for future success.

“Every time you have the chance to come out here and play you have to be getting better,” McCoy said. “You’re either getting worse or your getting better. I don’t think you can get worse by playing games. I think we are improving and that’s how we are going to look at it.”

The JV Trojans, now 0-3, will be back at home next Monday when they host Enterprise at 6 p.m.

“We are going to try to get a couple of days during the week to get some guys some work,” McCoy said. “We want to be able to get them some work just 10-15 minutes at the end of practice where they can get some reps so they can be better prepared for their game.”
