Coaches use pre-season scrimmages to pull a team together and discover weaknesses. Based on Floyd County High School’s scrimmage with Hidden Vallen Friday night, the coaches have a lot of work ahead.

Botched handoffs (above) resulting in turnovers, poor tackling, lackluster blocking and an inability to move the ball down the field jinxed the Buffaloes throughout the scrimmage.

Things weren’t much better up in Washington where the inept Redskins lost another pre-season game 24-17 to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Looks like it could be a long year for the football faithful in Chateau Thompson.
