It will not mark the end of spring practice, but rather the beginning of the end.
With practices scheduled to run through Thursday, the Waxahachie football team will host its annual Green and White game at 7 p.m. Monday at Lumpkins Stadium.
Head coach David Ream and his staff entered the spring with several question marks and he finds out if any of those have been answered Monday.
“We’ve made strides,” Ream said. “Our talent level went up when we got the four or five baseball players back and the execution got better.
“We’ve also seen some good play from some young guys that will be contributors on the varsity.”
The teams will not be mixed to pit the first team defense against the first team offense. Ream prefers to mix the teams will those who will be on first and second team.
“We try to divide teams as evenly as possible, so it may not be real smooth at times,” he said. “We’re just looking for people to come in and execute the things we’ve been working on. We know what we have in certain spots, but there are still people looking for a roster spots or starting spots.”
One area where competition has been fierce during the spring has been the offensive line, where the Indians do not have anyone returning with varsity experience.
“We really haven’t solidified that spot yet, it’s all up in the air still” Ream said. “The competition has been pretty good so far, but we’ll find out Monday how they handle the pressure.”
The Green and White game will begin at 7 p.m. Monday at Lumpkins and is free to the public.
