For spring tackle play time is strictly earned. All players will receive coaching and development throughout the entire season. On game day players will only receive the playtime they have earned that week at practice. Unlike our fall season there are no minimum plays for players on game day. No player will ever be criticized by the team for any lack of playtime and will continually be encouraged by our staff to earn it. Its our goal that by the end every single player has gotten better, is a State Champion and is battle tested for the fall and his next level of play.
