Cane Bay football coach Russell Zehr said his team is a work in progress as the season approaches.
Scrimmages last week against James Island and Woodland affirmed that for him. There were some things the Cobras did well but many other things went awry.
Zehr counted bad snaps, missed tackles and poor alignment as just some of the Cobras' problems.
“It's kind of like having all the ingredients you need to make something but it turns out wrong,” he said. “There's not really one thing we can pinpoint. It's a lot of little things. It's just going to take time and reps.”
The Cobras led James Island 27-6 in the second half before winning 27-20. Against Woodland, the Wolverines scored three times and Cane Bay scored twice.
The Cobras played both scrimmages without starting quarterback Devin Kilgore, who was banged up after the Timberland scrimmage on Friday, Aug. 9.
Backups Bridges Howard and Jonathan Bowman handled the snaps under center. Kilgore was set to return for a scrimmage at Andrews on Tuesday or Friday in the Sertoma Classic against Colleton County.
Against James Island, running backs Romante Frasier and Keshawn Foy scored touchdowns on the ground. Trey Burdette hauled in a TD pass on a screen from Bowman. Howard also scored on a run.
Howard and Frasier scored against Woodland.
Cane Bay opens the regular season in a locally televised game on Aug. 29 at Summerville.
