Denison Coach’s Blog Week of Sept. 16
The Denison Yellow Jackets beat Frisco Liberty, 33-16, last Friday for its first victory of the season. Going into the team’s bye week, Coach ChadRogers discusses the game and the beginning of district play.
You’ve gotten that first win of the season now. How does that feel?
“It is exciting; I’m happy for the kids. And so proud of them.”
How did the team play overall?
“They played hard; we overcame some adversity. We started fast and finished fast.”
What about the offensive unit?
“We stayed on our blocks; did better than we have all season. We had 300 yards rushing.”
What about the defense?
“We played well. We gave up some touchdowns, but we made them work for them. We are getting better.”
Are there any players you want to single out on defense?
“Yselif Chavez made a difference for us; Jacob Hunt and Derrick Benson did a good job for us, too. Placion Gray had some good plays for us.”
What about the offense? How about your new quarterback?
“Kevin Blanton did a great job for us (for starting quarterback Chance Rogers-concussion). I was pleased. And Dennard Whitfield had 160 yards running the ball.”
You have the bye week and then district begins with Wylie East. What type of team are the Pirates?
“They are a good team; they have the best quarterback in our district. But we match up well with them.”
Two starters – Rogers and Josh Heath – out with concussions last Friday. What are their availability?
“They will be ready. We are going to use the bye to get healthy and work on grades. We will be sound.”
