Coach Beckett's Review
"It was good to have some success against Shoals. They only lost four seniors off of the team that beat us out of the playoffs. We battled the heat in the second game."

The Outstanding "The offensive line picked up where it left off run-blocking. Quarterback Nathan Coker and Josh Gogus ran the ball well. Several good kick returns and David Hernandez was consistent kicking."

The Good "The defensive line played well in spots and the linebackers showed improvement."

Needs Work "The secondary gave up way too many big plays. Pass blocking can be better and we never got any pressure on their passer."

Chad Hawkins Stadium

NOTE: Coach Beckett will be the guest of Jon Holder on the WJSU-TV 24 this Friday Night on the show's "Pigskin Roundup."

INTERESTING FACT: Collinsville wide reciever/safety Colby Helms played for Coosa the last several years. His father Teddy was the head football coach having an impressive 18-14 record and taking Coosa to two playoff appearances. Thusly, the game will be a big one for the Helms.

Quoting Coach Beckett: "Our total focus is week one and Coosa. I hope our community does a good job of helping us take it one game at a time. The worst thing our community can do is talk about games that we don't play this week."

"We are eagar to get it started. Our guys have waited a long time to start it."

On last years 41-20 win over Coosa, "It was the best half (first-half) we had all year. We were really up for the game. I hope we don't lose that edge. We have to be geared up to play well. I'm sure they will have new wrinkles and play us off our feet."
