The fall high school football practice season is over for the Clinton Maroons football team as they took advantage of the flexibility offered by the IHSA for the competition-absent fall season.
Coach Chris Ridgeway says they took advantage of all the practices available to them and while things weren't perfect, he was glad they were still able to get on the field and get both physical and mental repetitions.
According to Coach Ridgeway, getting the players introduced to his new offense was one of the most beneficial components of their practices this year. He says allowing the players to see how things are going to look was probably the most beneficial.
One of the positives out of the last few months of limited practices were the new faces to the program this year. According to Coach Ridgeway, they also saw players willing to take on new roles and try new things and he felt that also was positive.
According to Coach Ridgeway, he saw a lot of positives from players that will be a part of the program next year and beyond, which he hopes they continue to build on their progress.
Coach Ridgeway and the Maroons will now await the spring football season and for the winter sports athletes, preparations in hopes of a sports season will get underway in the next few weeks.
