Journal photo by Emily Hanson Bulldogs turn out in droves By EMILY HANSON emily@masoncounOz cam The North Mason football team has the had the biggest turnout for spring football practices in more than six years. Practices began June 4 with 74 Bulldogs attending. "There's only been one other team with almost 70 at spring practices," head coach Jeff Bevers said. "That was when (John) Fullington was a junior and we'd had a 9-2 season the fall before." Fullington graduated from North Mason in 2010. He recently gradu- ated from Washington State Univer- sity, where he played four years of football and has signed a free-agent contract with the Green Bay Packers. Of the 74 North Mason football players participating in spring prac- tices, Bevers said about 50 have signed up for the team's camp in July. "Between the juniors and seniors, we've got close to 45 kids returning," Bevers said. "All the seniors had var- sity experience and four of the juniors played varsity last year." He said he's seen a lot of enthusi- asm from the Bulldogs so far. "There's real good energy with a lot of leadership from our seniors," he said. "Those are good steps. How it'll translate, we'll see." Bevers said he'd hoped to see more sopho- mores turn out for spring practices. "They kind of got beat up playing a junior var- sity schedule (last fall) because we didn't have a C-team," he added. Of the more than 20 freshmen who played in 2013, only eight or nine have returned for spring ball. "We have 25 incoming freshmen with us now and we will have a C-team this year," Bevers said. "I'm excited how that will grow the team." Bevers said he'll use the spring practices to help team members bond. The team ended spring practices Tuesday and will participate in noncontact activities, working on skills until camp. The Bulldogs will attend the Steve Gervais Academy from July 7 to 11 at The Evergreen State College in Olympia.

Deadline for news and advertising00 is Monday at 5:00 p.m. Young Owls get in shape Spring football practice starts conditioning for Mary M. Knight By EMILY HANSON emily@masoncoun cam Matt Brkljacich knows he has a challenge this fall. The Mary M. Knight head football coach will start the 2014 season with just five returning players: seniors James Anderson, Austin Re- necker, Taylor Diggle and Adam Pais and ju- nior Isaiah Thompson. This leaves him three positions to fill and more than 15 young, inexperi- enced football players to fill them. To address this chal- lenge head-on, Brkljacich hosted spring football beginning June 2 and concluding Tuesday. The seven days of practice last about 90 minutes each day. "We're so young that I wanted kids to learn how to put on gear, teach them drills they can do alone in the summer and get conditioning started for the summer," Brkljacich said. "We've got to come into camp (in August) in shape. I can't spend two weeks getting them into shape." More than 20 athletes turned out for practices last week to participate in no-contact, no-gear drills followed by light- contact drills with gear. The majority of ath- letes were incoming freshmen and eighth- graders, many of whom had never put on pads before. "We've got some inex- perience to deal with, but I like their attitudes," Brkljacich said. He said all of the young athletes know the five returning players, who have been welcom- ing to the new Owls. "I'd go to battle with those (five returners) any game," Brkljacich said. A big part of his strat- egy for the spring prac- tices was to split the team into groups, with the returning players leading the drills. "If I can get my ath- letes to teach other ath- letes, that's where they'll learn," Brkljacich said.
