Much to Learn From Scrimmages
Scrimmages allow coaches and players to get in the rhythm of regular season play and to look for strong points and weaknesses in individual players and the team as a whole. The Cavalier Varsity and JV squads both learned a great deal from their dual scrimmages with Thomas Dale and Hanover. The Cavs faced two very different teams and this showed some flaws and strengths the teams will need to work on. "We have some real athletic players but we also have many guys that lack a lot of football experience and a couple that have never played before. " said Clover Hill Head Coach Sean O'Hare. "Half our varsity team is made up of freshmen and sophomores and they are going to have to find that varsity speed for us to be effective against the tougher teams." Like many area teams O'Hare and his coaches are fighting low roster numbers because of parental concerns for injuries primarily concussions. Cav trainer Tom Cartwright pointed out that we have no more concussions now than we had ten years ago but now we are more aware and have better ways to prevent them and better ways to determine if an athlete may have a concussion. Schools are working harder than ever to inform parents and to keep athletes healthy. Speaking for myself the host to this website I would much rather see my child playing a sport and learning some valuable life lessons while under the watchful eye of trained athletic personnel instead of running the streets after school where they can run into bigger problems . Each parent and athlete must decide for themselves but I have faith in those coaches and trainers to look out for the future of our athletes.
