The Tigers’ summer workout schedule is under way, and Kendall is happy with what he’s seen so far.
“We are under way and the guys are working hard,” Kendall said. “They are really getting after it.”
Kendall said the players are doing a great job of pushing each other.
“They are competing with each other and that is what we like to see,” Kendall said. “Whether it is in the weight room or on the field, they are competing with each other and holding each other accountable. That is what you really want to see as a coach and we are really enjoying seeing that.”
Kendall said the team’s seniors, who have been a part of so much success the past two years, are doing a nice job of leading the way with their work ethic.
“That’s one thing you want to see from the seniors,” Kendall said. “That goes a long way in the season too. We are a senior-led team, but like I have been telling the guys, you don’t have to be a senior to be a leader.”
The Tigers’ summer plans will consist mostly of working out at the school, although the team will compete in a few seven-on-seven passing tournaments, including one that starts at the University of Georgia on Friday.
Troup also has a seven-on-seven event at Shaw High on the schedule, and there’ll be a lineman camp in July.
“There is a lot of stuff out there for seven on sevens, but for the guys in the trenches there’s not a lot of them out there so we are trying to find a good balance for both of them,” Kendall said.
Troup opens its season Aug. 31 at Redan.
