The Spring Game is behind us…
The Summer is upon us..
Which means the season is almost upon the shoulders of young men,coaches and of course us, the fans..
I think sometimes us as fans get a little too excited before we even give our team the benefit of the doubt.I am just as guilty of this flaw as anyone else. Most of the time,we really don’t know how good our team actually is until a month or so into the season…and sometimes your schedule doesn’t afford the luxury of being “a work in progress”.
One of the things I personally have always loved is The Spartanburg Vikings willingness to put together a schedule that is tough,sometimes damn near brutal. Over time,the off-season schedule of high school football has basically evolved into the same commitment of toughness. Over the next Month or so Spartanburg will face a lot of good competition.
Assistant Offensive coordinator & Wide receivers Coach Nate Harris recently spoke with me about The Blue and Gold Game this Past week. “The spring game was Awesome,”he said. “We put on film a lot new things we have been working at. We showed that our “Death Row” is better than its ever been”. Harris also added,”As a whole we are super excited for these group of kids. We left it short 2 years in a row in the upper state, we are working hard to finish and not let games slip away from our mistakes…We only work on us, and how we use the process to get better.”
Tommy Washington, Romain Kelly, and Damyjai Foster did a great job on the Blue on offense. Rock Ferguson, Nigel Moore, and Kam Robinson did the heavy lifting on the Gold side of the Ball. You can watch Kam Robinsons Highlights from the Spring Game below.
Kam Robinson definitely has the tools and skills to be one the best Viking Players ever.While that statement may be my biased opinion,to the eyes of Spartanburg fans and some others around the Southeast..IT IS FACT. The 6’1 215 pound prospect was recently named one of the top ten Running Backs at EPT TRAINING CAMP.
