More Experience For Henrietta Football

It was a tale of two seasons for the 2010 Henrietta Bearcats.

On one hand, the team went 3-2 in district play, earning a playoff berth. On the opposite hand, the team finished 3-8 overall, losing 6-0 in that bi-district playoff game.

The Bearcats know they must improve, and junior lineman Parker West says it starts now, with two-a-days.

"These first couple weeks are pretty essential to our whole season because we have to come together as a team and be together as a team and play as a team," West said. "It's just a pretty big deal to be out here as a family and play as a family."

That's the attitude you'd expect from head coach Byron West's son. Coach says his team is one step ahead at camp this year because many of his younger players were forced into action last year because of injuries, and that most of those players will join the older players this year as full-time starters.

One older player looking forward to the season is senior quarterback Kolten Booher.

"Coming out here for my first last day of two-a-days, it's starting to set in, but we're looking to go in, senior year we're holding nothing back," Booher said.

He'll be relying on what he's learned from previous Henrietta signal callers. He says he knows it's his job to keep everyone on the field on the same page.

Henrietta opens the season on the road at Pottsboro on August 26th.
