“We need to get this in, we need it bad” the words of Alexander Central Football coach Butch Carter about tonight’s scrimmage against Maiden. The Cougars have had a number of practices compromised or moved indoors during the stormy weather of late and it has the coach a bit antsy about the start of the regular season that’s exactly one week from tonight.
Wednesday, the Cougars had their scrimmage cut short by a thunderstorm at North Davidson and the forecast for tonight holds that possibility again. Carter has said that the scrimmages are very important for a number of players who are battling for starting spots and playing time. Of course, Alexander Central is not alone in having issues with the rainy Summer but when you’re a coaching staff preparing for a season with a lot of expectations following a conference championship, you can understand the concern.
The scrimmage will feature both junior varsity and varsity action at Cougar Stadium beginning at 6pm !
