work to be done
With most football programs an 8-3 season and a runner-up finish in district play would be cause for celebration. Scott Community High School doesn’t consider itself most programs. Expectations are always high and following this year’s campaign the SCHS coaching staff is more focused on what has to happen in order for the Beavers to make a deeper run in the playoffs. “You can always find good things during the season that you can build on,” says head coach Jim Turner. “There are boys who have shown big improvement that are going to be a big part of next year’s team. “But there are areas in which we have to improve, and pretty significantly, if we don’t want to experience the same disappointing finish to our season that we had this year.” It’s no surprise that the defense anchored this team throughout the season, allowing an average of just 11.1 points and 75.7 yards rushing per game. The offense, on the other hand, was another matter. The Beavers were slow coming out of the gate, scoring just 14 points in each of their first two games - a pair of narrow wins over Hugoton and Holcomb. The 285 points scored was well behind last year’s 441 and the lowest season total since 2007 (also 285 points).
