Bosco Tech coach Branden Jones knows Friday’s night’s game vs Workman at Salesian has three important components.
The first being, the Tigers can get last week’s 51-0 beatdown at the hands of St. Genevieve out of their minds.
Secondly, Jones wants to exit Friday’s game with a healthy squad entering the bye week, and lastly, they’ll have two weeks (including the bye week) to get ready for their South Catholic League opener against Verbum Dei on Oct. 1.
Bosco’s offense has scored just 66 points in the first four games and allowed 133.
Rey Castellanos’ 143 yards per game has been carrying much of the load for the offense.
“Workman is a tough, physical, well-coached team,” Jones said. “Offensively, they execute their run-first scheme, spearheaded by a great tailback.”
Jones said last week’s loss helped foster a solid, focused week of practice.
“We made a lot of simple mistakes (last week) that we alleviated by a good week of practice and film,” Jones said. “We need to establish a presence in the trenches to keep this close into the fourth quarter. This will be decided by which team makes the least mistakes.”
