As the season progresses with conference play looming around, Head Coach Rich Apriesio leads the JV football team with a specific plan. He has implemented a new offensive system that the players have adjusted to. Even though they maintain a losing record, the Moors earned an impressive 48-0 win against the LA Wilson Mighty Mules.
“It’s great working with [the players],” Apriesio said. “They are catching on in a new system that we’re teaching.”
Since league games are up ahead, the team practices daily to install new plays both on offense and defense. According to Apriesio, the team’s strength is their running attack because they have a great running back through team captain Joey Santana.
“Besides the running game, our team is very strong and physical,” Santana said. “It’s a great experience as a captain of this football team.”
The players have said nothing but good things about this football team, especially the coach. According to Santana, the team believes that he is a smart coach who knows what he is talking about.
The team’s first league game is on Oct. 10 against Bell Garden at Moor Field.
