AHS Football: Conversation with Steve Warren

AHS Football: Conversation with Steve Warren

Abilene High head coach Steve Warren talks to David Robinett about his teams loss to Duncanville and the coming District 2-5A opener.
David Robinett asked, "Another disappointing loss, and not the way you want to go into district, but it seems like things were more positive after the Duncanville game than in Week 0. Is that a fair read?"

AHS head coach Steve Warren said, "It is. We improved as a football team. We did a lot of things better. We just can't turn it over. 5 times we give the ball right back to them, and it resulted in 35 points. If we don't do that, it's a 4th quarter game, and we are tied. You give yourself a chance. When you put the ball on the ground, or you commit a silly penalty on a 4th down, things like that, you put yourself in a bind, and you have to overcome those things. We've got to get those things cleaned up and move forward in that area, that's for sure."

Robinett asked, "Are mental mistakes easier to solve than physical mistakes?"

Coach Warren said, "Yea, most definitely. All of our turnovers that were self-inflicted, everything we did, we can get fixed. That's the great thing about it. You look back at that game, and we did a lot of really good things, but we've got to get that fixed, and we can going into district play."

Robinett asked, "Speaking of district play, it gets going this week. Are you guys, the players and the coaches, ready to get this thing going?"

Coach Warren said, "Absolutely! It's a new season, new intensity in practice. All the goals that you set, everything you are working towards, count for real. Everything you've done to this point makes you a better team because of that, and that's what we are pointing towards and looking forward to the 1st district game."
