Sherman Coach’s Blog Off Season 5 2017
 
The Sherman Bearcats have finished their summer strength and conditioning program and are ready for fall practice beginning Aug. 14. Coach J. D. Martinez is ready for the new season as his second year begins at Sherman High.
 
How has the summer gone for the Bearcats?
 
“Good; everyone worked hard in our strength and conditioning program. I’m proud of them.”
 
When do the Bearcats start fall practice?
 
“We start on Aug. 14 because we had spring practice.”
 
What do you like about spring practice that lets you drop a week off of fall practice per the UIL rules?
 
“We get that extra time (one month) to evaluate what we have; we get to take our time with our players. It’s a good situation, I think.”
 
How is the attitude around the locker room?
 
“The kids are positive; they are ready and we will hit the ground running on the 14th.”
 
How does the offense look?
 
“Our O-line is blocking well; we have some great running backs. Our wide receivers – Tyler Jones and Darren Sewell – are good. We have some basketball players coming over this year as well.”
 
What about quarterback?
 
“Luke Lankford is our starter from the spring. There is going to be some competition in fall practice. We have overall talent on offense; they are some tough guys. I expect some good things from them on the field.”
 
What about defense?
 
“We are very solid. Ty Rockins and T.K. Walkin and Jaylin Cotton are set; our linebackers are good. We have some key people in good places: Landon Cole, Cody Hunter and Austin Bendal. I like the talent on defense, too. It’s a nice problem to have.”
 
How does the season look for 2017?
 
“We are all 0-0; we’re optimistic about what we can do. We’ll see where we can go from here; where we are headed.”
 
What are some of your goals?
 
“Number one is to simply get better each week; then we want to secure a playoff spot. And we really want to bring the Axe home.”
