Taft faced teams from Frontier, Garces and Centennial

While most people take the summer to relax, members of the Taft varsity football team continued to work on their game Wednesday evening when they competed in week two of the 7-on-7 competition at the State Farm Sports Complex in Bakersfield.

“I felt that our timing and rhythm offensively was a lot better,” said Taft coach Jarudd Prosser. “I felt we competed better.”

The format was the same as last week with the Wildcats playing three teams out of the 14 that took part. Each game lasted about thirty minutes and was played on half a field with each game running on downs instead of the number of plays.

One difference between this week and last week was who the Wildcats played. Taft started off the tournament by facing the Frontier Titans on Field No.2. After taking on the Titans, Taft moved to Field No.3 to face the Garces Rams. Taft wrapped up the tournament by taking on the Centennial Hawks on the same field. Prosser liked the idea of facing new teams.

“You got to see a lot of different offenses and defenses,” said Prosser.

Taft will compete in one more tournament in Bakersfield next Wednesday. There are some things Prosser said the team needs to work on like catching the ball.

“I think we need to take another step forward,” he said.

Before competing in the Bakersfield tournament, the Wildcats will head to the Morro Bay Bash at the Beach this weekend.
