The Greyhounds made progress every day in their opening week of spring practice last week, new coach Justin Rogers said.

“The first week went good. We’re making a lot of changes, so you knew it would be rough. We improved greatly from Monday through our first scrimmage on Saturday morning. But we’re still a long way from home,” he said.

Rogers, who was hired last month to replace Dwight Jones, is installing the spread offense he employed as offensive coordinator at Griffin. The Bears were the Class AAAA state champions last season, setting a school record by scoring 42.7 points a game while going 15-0.

It will take time for the Greyhounds to become anywhere near as proficient as that, however, he said.

“We’re still looking at a lot of guys in different positions, trying to see who fits where and what the best combinations are,” he said. “But the guys are working at it.”

So far, Rogers has been working four quarterbacks – returning starter Anthony Parker, a rising junior, rising sophomores Bradley Hunnicutt and Brooks Veal, who quarterbacked the freshman team last season, and rising freshman Teldrick Ross from Clifton Ridge Middle School.
