At 0-4 after Friday’s loss to Fossil Ridge, it’s clear the Thompson Valley High School football team is struggling on multiple fronts and more or less needs to think of the 2011 season as a path for better results in 2012.
But that’s not meant to sound cynical. The second half of Friday’s 45-19 loss saw the Eagles pick up the pace as Spencer Shook used the short-pass game to advance the ball. Whether intended or not, TVHS looked good targeting Oby Rios multiple times in a row, and then shifting a pass to Drew meintzer when the defense seemed to be watching Rios extra-closely.
Shook looks like he can run the ball with some skill (although it’s a hazard to his health), and the Eagles will surely need his production in that regard. But the slice-and-dice passing attack had a definite appeal, as it’s not like Thompson Valley only moved the ball against Fossil Ridge’s bench players.
