There’s an old line that says practice makes perfect. As the 2009 Washington County Commander football team prepares for the start of the season on Aug. 21, WC head football coach Mark Perry doesn’t look for perfection, but he is looking for some big improvements.

The intrasquad game is designed to bring up real game situations before the team plays against other schools.

“You don’t know how kids are going to react until they’re in a certain situation,” added Perry. “That plays a big role in determining the lineup. I think you’re going to see some kids get a little nervous. Some guys are good practice players and they back down a little bit in game situations. Some guys aren’t good practice players, but they really play when the lights are on.”

Commander fans are encouraged to come out Friday night and get their first look at the 2009 Washington County football team.

“This Friday is an important night. The following week we have a scrimmage at North Oldham. That will be more of a game simulation scrimmage. The kids are working as hard as any bunch that we’ve had during my six seasons here. We need to take a step each day. I think they’re hungry to go and be successful this year.”

The blue/gold scrimmage is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. at the practice field.
