Game Day Preview - Sachse

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was a fierce match up last year as the Pirates met the Mustangs at Garland’s Williams Stadium.  During the first quarter, starting quarterback Kameron Kelly was injured and Carsen Cook assumed the role for the Pirates.  In spite of putting up a good fight, Wylie ended with a loss in overtime with a score of 36-44.

 

Last season, Sachse finished second in 11-5A with an 8-3 record. Sachse returns quarterback Kent Myers, who passed for 2,803 yards and 28 touchdowns while rushing for 1,202 yards and 17 touchdowns.  They also have a senior-laden defense with lots of experience and a very talented secondary.   “Overall they have great team speed and depth at their skill positions which will help them on a hot night, as it’s going to be hot Friday night”, noted Pirate Head Coach Bill Howard. 

 

When asked what the Pirates need to do, Coach Howard said, “We need to limit our mistakes.  We have to win the turnover battle and we also have to win the line of scrimmage, offensively and defensively.  If we do that and play good solid hard-nosed football for 48 minutes, we have a chance to win.”

Pirates Ready For The Season

As the Pirates finish their second week of 2-a-days, and ready themselves for their scrimmage against Jesuit, we caught up with Coach Slechta and Coach Carter to see how pre-season practices have gone for both the offense and defense.

The Pirates were in off-season training for the majority of the summer, working on strength and conditioning, along with participating in 7 on 7 and linemen challenges.  After completing their first day in pads, Coach Carter felt that they had retained a lot from spring ball.   He said, “Everything looked good and they were playing fast.”  Having graduated several from the defense, the Pirates were looking to build their defensive line and secondary.  With a mix of returning starters and upcoming juniors, the Pirates will start with a good rotation.  Returning for the D-Line are Micheal Johnson and Divine Rockwell.  With the help of Ryan Beattie and Brandon Dotson, they’ll make up a capable defensive line rotation.  The linebackers also have a solid returning core with Ja’Varyea Hicks, Devon Hughes, Izzy Acuay and T’Kevian Rockwell and strong up and comers in Ricardo Sandoval and Michael Kloza.  Rockwell will play both ways, so the flexibility of rotation will be a plus.  The secondary this season gives the Pirates experience and freshness.  Playing the position of safety will be Elijah Harris, Romiro Gomez,, Obinna Amadi, and Kameron Kelly, who will assist when he is not on offense.   Returning senior cornerback Jarell Brown will provide leadership for the secondary along with Evan Bailey, Josh Chikumbindi and Ja’Kweylon Oliver, who will play both ways.  Coach Carter noted that their goal for this season was to play as few plays as possible on defense.  “If our defense isn’t on the field, our opponents don’t have a chance to score.  Our goal and focus is 3rd downs this year, and to get our defense off the field and our offense out on the field.  We have some weapons on offense and those guys need to be on the field.”

The offensive line this season is one of the strongest the Pirates have had in experience and depth.  Heading up the O-Line will be returning starters Laurent Njiki, Greyson Williams, Alex Garza, Victor Cheatham, and Castin Neumeyer.  Carlos Sanchez will also play right tackle and Brody Wright, who is injured at the moment, will also be an option.  It’s an experienced group and a strength for the team.  There are five possible starters in the running back position.  T’Kevian Rockwell will start on defense, but play his part on offense, as well.  Other players making up the group are Tristen Clark, Dontae Slay, Romello Keck, and Kevin Tran.  Each has their strengths which should give the Pirates good options in this area.  With the receiving corp last season mainly being seniors, the Pirates focus in spring ball was to find capable replacements. Among this talented group will be returning starter Alex Wesley, Dylan Riley, Darius Carter and Jordan Whaley.

The Pirates are in a very good place when it comes to signal callers, with two quarterbacks with about the same varsity experience.  Kameron Kelly, a senior, will bring much athleticism to the position as he is very comfortable throwing and running the ball.  Carsen Cook, a more “true” quarterback, ended last season with 2,315 passing yards for the season.  Expectations at the quarterback position are very high.

The Pirates will face Jesuit in their pre-season scrimmage this evening.  Jesuit High School is a 5A school and a play-off team that is well-coached.  This will be a great warm-up for the Pirates, giving them a chance to measure themselves.  Pirates head coach Bill Howard said, ‘It’s not about winning or losing, but about getting better.  It gives the players a chance to show us on film what they can do in a game against other people.  It’s a very important scrimmage, and it’s important for us to play well and important for us to execute. It’s a great measuring stick for us to see where we are right now.”

The scrimmage will take place at Jesuit’s Postell Stadium with the Freshmen playing at 4:00 p.m., the Junior Varsity at 5:00 p.m. and the Varsity at 6:00 p.m.

Spring Update #2 - Defense

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In today’s post, Coach Jimmy Carter took time to update us on the defense as week 4 of Spring ball concludes.

Coach Jimmy Carter is in his fourth year as defensive coordinator for the Pirates.  This is his seventh year  coaching for the Pirates in his ten year career.  Working alongside Coach Carter on defense are Kenny Wilkerson- D-Line coach assisted by Rich Frei, Kevin Cooper – outside linebacker coach, and Tony Cavalier – secondary coach assisted by Austin Shields.

During spring ball, he hoped to see the younger players get some experience and grow in depth.   When asked what makes up a great defense, Coach Carter said, “A group of kids that believe in each other and are unselfish.  They don’t really care who makes the tackle, as long as someone makes the tackle.”

As he looked at where they were defensively, he felt that the D-line and the inside linebackers brought the greatest strength to the team right now.  Returning are Ja’Vareyea Hicks, Israel Acuay, Divine Rockwell, Michael Johnson and Devon Hughes.  “All five of those guys played last year, two rounds deep in the play-offs and those guys with experience will help with our inexperience in the secondary.” 

With the secondary being the area of focus, he felt that it was improving daily and with a couple of seniors, juniors and sophomores fighting for spots, he had much to work with.  Jarell Brown remains solid in the secondary.  Among those that have shown great potential during spring are Romero Gomez as safety and Evan Bailey as corner.  Not wanting to share “all his secrets”, Coach Carter summed it up that the Defense is doing good!
