From communicating, running their routes, being accountable, and being physical.

“Being consistent, doing what your coached to do is the biggest thing for me is player’s just being coachable. We got coaches out here coaching and I don’t want players trying to lead and do a coaches job, I just want them to come in this spring and do a great job taking care of taking coaching from coaches and just being coachable throughout the duration of the spring” said Pinkins.

One of his seniors has high aspirations for the upcoming season.

”I really want to improve on touchdowns, I’m a running back, I’m the starting running back so I want a lot of touchdowns. All around defense, offense, getting mad all that, we don’t need that this year. I expect that ring, that state ring, 1A” said Tony Burkes.
