After weeks of working out and practicing, the Alice Coyote football program’s spring drills are culminating with a head-to-head Orange and White game.

The intrasquad football scrimmage is set for 6 p.m. Friday in Memorial Stadium. The Orange and White game is free to the public. Through the spring, the Alice program was split into two teams for practice and Friday's game.

Alice head coach Kyle Atwood said the scrimmage will feature some special teams play and some offensive and defensive situations and scrimmage play. The scrimmage will include two “live” quarters with game officials on the field. Regardless of the outcome, Atwood, now entering his third season in Alice, said the program benefitted from the spring drills.

“Absolutely, this spring has been beneficial for us,” Atwood said. “We’ve had a good spring and really a good look and some kids that have stepped up and played and proved to us that they are capable and ready to be players.”

One of the goals of this spring was to abandon the program’s “two-platoon” system where each player focused on just offense or defense and teach each player a position on both sides of the ball. Atwood said it was a good move for the team and one that will add depth this coming football season.

“I think the kids did a great job of learning their roles on offense and defense,” he said. “I think we’re going to be much better off this fall.”
