Greenwood High School football coach Dan Pippin saw some good things out of his team during their first scrimmages Friday against Seneca, Clinton and Emerald. And, the first-year headman of the Eagles saw some bad things.
Mostly, though, Pippin was happy to see how hard his kids played in their first chance to play against another team.

“It was good and bad,” Pippin said. “Like any scrimmage, I think that’s the way it will be. It wasn’t either one. It was kind of just right down the line. But, I was happy with the kids’ effort. You can’t correct effort. You can correct kids not blocking the right and stuff like that, so I was happy with our effort.”
Emerald coach Tim McMahon was also pleased with the effort, not only with his Vikings but with the other three teams, too.
“It was a good scrimmage,” McMahon said. “All the teams, everybody played with a lot of intensity. Our kids ran to the ball really well on defense and we had a good effort.”
