Wanna know about how the Taft football team did this season?

 

The Taft Tribune was able to interview a member of the Toreador football team about the ending of their Fall 2018 season. Tyler Norman is the left and right tackle and has been on the football team for 1 year. As a member of the team, he knows that they are in a bad state at the moment. But there are still a few good devoted players that try to keep everyone motivated on the team. Tyler thinks more of these players should be on the team. Tyler did not stop trying to motivate his teammates until the season ended.

 

When asked about his thoughts about the football team’s stats this year, Tyler says the team doesn’t do well in the first half but slightly catches up in the second half. Tyler said, “Since the football team is not conditioned enough physically and mentally, [we have] bad coordination and bad chemistry between the players. [This further complicated our season and] made it not possible to win”. Now we need to look forward to next season, there’s still hope for the team to not lose every game in 2019.

 

Tyler says next year the team will be much better and stronger physically and mentally. “We are conditioning hard during offseason and will be prepared.” He sees potential during practice in every player. They all look out for each other and give constructive criticism on certain plays. He sees the future of Taft Football being positive. “I can safely say I am excited about 2019 Taft Football season.”

    this football season has been a bummer but we do believe we will do better next season as we are now weeding out the weak and unmotivated as our new head coach is actually the old coach back in the glory days. we are separating the wheat from the chaff and many of us now do two or more sports

    As a part of the Taft varsity football team,I agree with what Tyler says.We need motivation on the team,in the locker room you would never hear “we got this guys” nor “we got this game” instead we’d make bets of how badly we’d lose,guessing the score.After the second game many people lost their fire and progressively with internal problems we lost a lot of people physically and mentally because if your heart isn’t in the game,you might as well not play.I have high hopes for this season but we need two things,more people and more hearts because have 100 players is great but if only 9 have heart for the game,the rest will let us down,instead of talking trash about your football team,get up your butt and do something about it.
