Valley Christian good at times, tentative at others in scrimmage

Valley Christian Academy showed glimpses of brilliance and areas of improvement in its jamboree-style football scrimmage Saturday.

With offense and defense broken into 15-minute sets, Nick Norwood led the Lions’ offense in one spurt with more than 80 yards rushing in just six carries. On defense, Valley Christian’s Teagan Mowry made three tackles for a loss of yardage.

But the Lions looked different on other drives. The squad gave up a plethora of scores against Sutter during its set, and the offense failed to score.

“Against the tougher competition, they were a little tentative,” Conroy said. “We have to hit harder and realize that every single team is exactly the same. Rather than thinking of them as a weaker team or whatever, we just have to execute.”
