JULY 7, 2016 - STEBBINS
With just two camp days under their belts, the Covington Buccaneers took part in seven-on-seven scrimmages against five different opponents at Stebbins High School on Thursday - Greenon, Northridge, Stebbins, Thurgood Marshall and Cincinnati Hughes.

And after coming out on top in each of the five scrimmages, Covington coach Ty Cates couldn't have been more pleased with his kids.

"I'm super proud of the kids with how they competed today," said Cates. "They are still learning a new system from what they've done in the past, but the kids did a great job of executing what we called. Sure, there were some assignment issues, but not as many as you'd think considering we are in the very early stage of learning a new system."

Offensively, Covington showcased a deep and talented pool of weapons for quarterbacks Nathan Blei, Ty Freeman and Cade Schmelzer.

"A lot of kids made some big plays tonight and our quarterbacks made some good decisions with the football," Cates explained. "Our route running was solid, but we can still be a little more crips, which will come with more repetitions in practice."

Defensively, Covington flat out flew to the football all evening. The defensive backs and linebackers more often than not were spot on in their coverage.

"I was little concerned coming in about how we would look defensively because some of the stuff we are doing is all new to the kids and we haven't had a whole lot of time to work on it," Cates said. "But I was very impressed with how the kids flew around and made plays. The kids were physical and relentless. We did have some assignment issues, but those mistakes can be corrected through coaching. Overall, I was very pleased with our defensive effort."

One thing that stood out was the condition of the Covington football team on what was a hot, muggy afternoon.

"You could see our kids are well conditioned and that's a credit to how hard these kids work," praised Cates. "It's also a credit to our senior class, who provide great leadership. Our younger kids are still learning what it means to play physical and fast between the whistle, but the seniors are helping bring them along."

It"s still early in the summer, but Cates feels his team has the potential to be very good if it keeps building on each day.

"We talk all the the time about winning each day," Cates explained. "This was a great day for Covington football, but it is only the beginning. As long as the kids continue to work hard, stay focused and remain coachable, we have the potential to be very good."
