“I’m thinking about playing football next year because it will be my last chance,” junior Connor Amesbury said, “It’s a once in a lifetime experience.”
Amesbury was one of the many Davis High boys who attended an informative meeting in the team room, this Wednesday, Dec 17. Its purpose was to inform prospective football players about next year, and about what was to be expected.
Coach John Wiley lead a lecture on expectations, priorities, and tactics for the upcoming season. He started off by announcing the team’s new motto “push to the playoffs.”
“Even though we want to have fun, our mindset should be that we want to be winners.” Wiley said.
Next year everyone will be expected to have a zero period, where they will be spending time in a class room as well as on the field. “One of our priorities is that we teach you football.” Wiley said.
He also made it clear that another priority was to have a fast paced offense. Wiley said that in order for them to accomplish this they need to be “in better shape than everybody.”
“Coach Wiley heavily emphasized the amount of work that goes into it,” junior Brady Corcoran said.
Wiley hopes for the team to not only be a team on the field, but off the field as well. He plans on holding a luncheon once a month, to help foster the feeling of community. He will also be providing the players with “spirit wear”, so that they can look like a team.
