It might look like Elmwood-Brimfield has coasted to an unbeaten record but Todd Hollis will tell you differently.
“Week 1 was still a little bit of a struggle. Week 2 our kids saw things differently
and fixed those things,” said Elmwood-Brimfield coach Todd Hollis. “Since then we;’ve been able to move the ball successfully.”
He was talking about his offensive line. A line that returned only one starter froma year ago.
A line that has helped the Trojans incorporate the pass a little more this season. And a line that has helped the team average 49 points a game.
“Coming into this year, we were nervous,” said senor center Cyrus Snider. “Our line is a lot smaller than last year. We had big boys on the line last year.”
Different line bu the results are the same. The Trojans are 6-0 heading into Friday’s big showdown with unbeaten Farmington.
“Not much has changed, it’s a lot of the same stuff,” said junior tight end Henry Lampe. “We’ve worked on passing routes, worked on more than we have in the past.”
The Trojans are thankful their new-look line has come together and they’re off to a great start this season. But they realize they have some big opponents towards the end.
And these next couple of weeks will probably define their season.
“There’s some teams on our schedule thant are pretty good,” said Hollis. “Bushnell, Farmington, Knoxville are there. Our work is ahead of us for sure. I think we can get better. That’s the good thing, play your best at the end of the season.”
