Early offense and stingy defense equal Okeene’s first win in eight-man football
The Okeene Whippets’ debut in eight-man football was a successful one as they defeated the Maud Tigers by a score of 28-6 in a lopsided affair. Coach Chad Miller and the Whippets got out to an impressive start in the first quarter, scoring on their opening drive as if they’d been operating in this offense for years.
Okeene was limited all off-season with only a few spring practices and no team camp, making their performance all the more impressive. The offense marched the ball 49 yards in 10 plays, with new quarterback Bryson Jinkens completing all three of his pass-attempts on the opening drive.
“Coming out, I thought we were pretty fired up,” stated Miller. “We had a good game plan ready to go. We came out and executed really well, and jumped ahead 14-0. We were able to maintain that lea throughout the game. Our guys are excited, but there are still things we need to work on to get better. That’s part of the game, learning to get better each week. Overall, I am proud of the guys tonight. It’s nice to start o the season 1-0.”
