CALEDONIA, Miss. (WCBI) — Caledonia continues to build one brick higher towards being a competitive force year in and year out in Class 4A.
Head coach Andy Crotwell enters his fourth year with the Feds,. He believes with the talent and confidence returning in his senior class, that the sky is the limit for his team.
“All the experience we have lends to have confidence,” Crotwell said. “We have 27 seniors. Many of whom have played quite a few snaps for 1, 2 and even 3 seasons. That puts us in a position to be confident to execute.”
“I love the teamwork we have,” senior Cody White said. “We’ve been playing together for a long time. We know how to work well with each other and we get along really well.”
And the Feds get along really well together, especially on offense.
There’s talent all over the field for third year starter Spencer Unruh at quarterback. And with a new pace on offense being implemented, Caledonia believes they can unleash on the scoreboard in 2016.
“I think our tempo will be the difference,” senior Zion Ford said. “We’ve been conditioning really hard. We don’t run out of energy throughout the four quarters.”
“We return the bulk of the offensive line along with Zion and Spencer,” Crotwell said. “We’re not searching for an identity in the beginning of the year like we were last year.You know what you’re capable of doing and what your limitations are. I think we have a similar feel on defense. We feel comfortable in our own skin.”
And Caledonia is getting comfortable talking more than postseason.
The philosophy that coach Crotwell implemented when he arrived hasn’t changed, but the belief has…and there’s more to be accomplished for the Feds.
Our approach is the same it’s been since I got here,” coach Crotwell said. “We want to win the next snap, repetition in the weight room, the next sprint, we want to win every time someone puts a ball down or puts weight on a bar.”
“I think last year we didn’t finish as well as we should have,” senior Spencer Unruh said. “If we can do that this year, we can make a good run.”
“We’re just thinking playoffs,” Ford said. “Get to the playoffs and we’ll go from there.”
