Morgantown HS football team holds summer practice

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - Defense was the emphasis on the gridiron Tuesday at Pony Lewis Field in Morgantown.

The Mohigans practiced for about two hours, working on simple techniques that everyone needs to have down for the start of the 2018 campaign. They competed a little too, beginning with tug of war.  Players wanted to face the coaches, but coaches said they didn't want to do that.  

Head coach Matt Lacy said the three weeks he and his coaches get to be with the players are important. 

 "We can specifically talk about things that we want, our terminology. We met through the offseason as a coaching staff. Everybody's on the same page, and we have one common goal. And the big thing is just again getting to evaluate the kids. Now we have them all, and we can kind of see where the puzzle pieces start to fit," Lacy said.
