Terrrapins busy with spring training play
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.
