Comets using bye week to work on deficiencies

SoVaNow.com / September 02, 2021
After the season-opening 42-8 win over Person County Friday, the Halifax County High School varsity football team is using its bye week to concentrate on areas that need work.

After reviewing film of the game Coach Rob Senseney said the miscues are things they steadily work to correct.

“We need to clean up some special teams and pass coverage,” Senseney mentioned.

These were two areas the coaches were hoping they would be able to address in game situations before last Friday’s game.

After the first scrimmage of the season at Vance County, North Carolina Senseney said at the time that getting the defense to better recognize offense formations was hot on his to-do list.

Friday night was the first time any of the special teams had seen game action, so that things need to be addressed there should be of no surprise.

The one thing that Senseney said that he really liked after viewing tape was seeing how focused his players are in a game.

“[I] liked our kids’ mentality,” he said.

After a light practice on Monday Senseney said workouts will pick up as the week wears on.

As of the beginning of the week Senseney and his staff were still working on compiling stats from Friday’s game.
