Vikings ready to put positive finish on spring drills

Published 12:11 pm Tuesday, May 18, 2010

An hour before his players arrived for practice Monday, new Warren Central coach Josh Morgan walked into an office where his father, Robert, was sitting at a desk. The younger Morgan laid out a plan for a tackling drill he wanted to try that afternoon. When Robert Morgan couldn’t quite grasp the concept, his son quickly demonstrated the technique.

It was a small moment, but a slice of life for the Vikings these days. As spring practice winds down, change is in the air — a new coach and players, as well as some new philosophies for a new era.

“It’s not just with the coaching change. We graduated a good bit of seniors and it’s a new start for everybody,” Josh Morgan said, adding of the three-week spring practice period, “This helps me out. I’ve been waiting to jump on it as quick as I could. The new ideas, we’ll see how they work. From stretching and how we practice, see how the kids pick them up.”
