“Scrimmage Saturday” kicks-off game week for HS Football

South Park sees first live action since winning state title.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Scrimmage Saturday giving many teams across section VI a chance to hit a guy in a different colored jersey. At a scrimmage hosted by Canisius, reigning state champions South Park saw their first live action since winning that state title.

“We are hoping we look pretty big and physical,” Sparks head coach Tim Delaney said. “We have played well on defense, we run the ball pretty well. I thought we looked pretty good today. Obviously some things to work on but we are ready to open up the season on Friday.”

“It’s amazing and just different,” senior quarterback Nick Schaefer said. “When you practice you don’t go full on and you don’t want to hurt your team and out here you have full equipment ready to go you want to hit someone.”

“It was really good and refreshing,” Springville head coach Eric Jantzi said. “The kids got to see a different look and some bigger teams and storied programs. It was a good look for us.”

“Our kids played pretty well today, we came out slow but played well the last couple scrimmages,” Williamsville South Kraig Kuranski said. “It is so nice, we have so much respect for these other schools and the other coaches who are friends of ours so it was a nice place to be today.”

“You learn a lot about just what kind of team you are going to be,” Canisius head coach Rich Robbins said. “Everyone keeps it pretty vanilla but you get to see your line play and your toughness and your tackling and communication and things like that. We had some mistakes but we have good film of things we need to clean up before Saturday. “
