Thoughts from Head coach Jay Sawvel Following Practice

β€œIt was a beautiful day and appreciative of all the fans that came out today and watched us run around. We got a lot of scenarios in today, four-minute and two-minute. It was a good day in pads. We have work to do, but we have a great work ethic. This is more plays that we have done in a scrimmage since I have been here. I love the way that we are working.”

Spring Game

The spring game is set for April 27 at Cheyenne East High School with kick slated for 1 p.m. The spring game is also free and opened to the public.
