Denison Football Blog Number 14
Note: Denison lost to McKinney North, 62-24, to finish the season 2-8 in Coach Chad Rogers inaugural season. The team will return 18 players who started for the 2013 tilt.
Overall, how did you think the team did in the McKinney North game?
“Our kids worked really hard; the ball just didn’t bounce our way. I need to do a better job of coaching, too. We did some things right, but not enough of them.”
What were some of the keys to the game?
“We never stopped them on defense; they had a punt return (for a touchdown) on us, but we kept battling. That is very important.”
What about your offensive line?
“We did all right; their defensive line was quicker and we had problems with that.”
What about Clifton Hines – in his final game as quarterback?
“I thought he did well. He helped keep plays alive. He kept his eyes downfield. It just didn’t end like he wanted it to; it didn’t end like any of us wanted it to.”
What about your defense?
“Judging with the McKinney North game, we have to improve on defense if we are to be a good football team. We just didn’t get the job done often enough. We have to do a better job of coaching on defense.”
What about next year? With the season over, it is time to start thinking about it already.
“Our JV team went 7-0 in district this fall and the freshmen had a winning record. I think we are on the way up. We will have those 18 starters and some very good competition for them at every position. It’s going to be a fun off-season.”
Now that your first season is over, how do you characterize it?
“Obviously, it didn’t go as I wanted it to. I didn’t do the job I planned to do. I’ve got to be better; there are things I learned and am excited about next season. This year has gone fast, but we’ll get better.”
Any other thoughts on Denison Yellow Jacket football?
“Yes, I’ve found we have a great community here in Denison; we have great support. That is special. We have outstanding young men who are willing to represent their school and community. I feel privileged to be here.”
