The all-city high school football scrimmage was as intense as one would expect a regular season game to be.
Teams in the area rotated in their defenses and offenses and faced off with each other all morning at the Community Bowl. Each defense would face around 15 reps from several opposing offenses from neighboring schools, and then the rotation would continue.
Coaches like St. Mary’s defensive coordinator Toby Schweitzer said the scrimmage is a prime opportunity to learn more about a team’s strengths and weaknesses.
“Everybody wants to get a look at your positions, and see how kids progress,” Schweitzer said. “It’s interesting with AA this year. We don’t get non-conference games, so we have to get a good look at who can play for us this year.”
AA and AAA football officially kicks off next week.
