Stop right there

Cayden Bonham stops a Blanchard ball carrier before he can break into the open field last Friday night. The Dragons open the 2019 gridiron season this Friday night when they host Lindsay at the newly renovated Conger Field at 7 p.m.

As of presstime, kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at the newly and completely revamped Conger Field Friday night with Lindsay’s Leopards the opponent.

However, the time and venue could change depending on progress of the construction project.

The Dragons are coming off last Thursday’s scrimmage at Blanchard and have been shoring up areas of concern to the coaching staff this week.

“We did some good things in the scrimmage but there are still a lot of things to fix which we have been working on this week,” Scott said.

“Lindsay is a good football team,” the coach continued. “They are improved over last year.

“Their quarterback throws the ball well and they have receivers that can go get it,” Scott continued.

The Leopards are mainly a one back spread offensive unit but do show some two back sets.

“They are in doubles the majority of the time,” Scott said.

 The Leopards operate out of a 3-4 defense same as the Dragons.

Scott said the keys for a Dragon victory are fairly simple.

“It’s the same old thing,” he said. “Don’t turn the ball over. Capitalize on their mistakes and win the kicking game.”
