The Pee­wee Ter­rap­ins are get­ting a taste for the grid­iron ac­tion in the field sea­son and it tastes good.

The team is full into spring training and last Thurs­day, May 19, they headed to Brooks for a jam­boree style scrim­mage, and per­formed well on the fields. In the end, they tied the game.

It was 18-18, we tied it up the last 10 sec­onds of the game,” said coach Thomas Laf­fin. “It was a re­ally good hard hit­ting game.”

This is the coach­ing staff ’s first look at the team head­ing into the fall sea­son, and Laf­fin likes what he is see­ing.

“We have some good speed. A lot of the first year play­ers we thought would be a lit­tle scared of the high im­pact of the game, but they just kept get­ting up. In true Ter­rapin style, they never gave up,” said Laf­fin.

He is also see­ing great par­tic­i­pa­tion with 38 play­ers dressed.

“The kids are pumped and ready to go, it is great to see them out there,” said Laf­fin. “For a lot of guys it was their first time on the field, and it was great.”

The Ter­rap­ins are not done for the sea­son yet. This Satur­day, they are host­ing Brooks in a full real style game at 1 p.m.

“We are then off to a jam­boree on June 4, which will have them play three one­hour games in one day,” said Laf­fin.

The kids are pumped and ready to go, it is great to see them out there. For a lot of guys it was their first time on the field, and it was great. ”

The Drumheller Pee­wee Ter­rap­ins were in Brooks last Thurs­day for a scrim­mage, and played to a 18-18 tie.
