Mustangs Work to Master New Offense

The no-huddle offense used by the football team at Brookville High School put up 42 points per game last season, helping the Bees win a second straight state title.

In April, Jeff Woody stepped down as the Bees' head coach to take over the football program at Monticello High School. Now he's spending his summer installing the same no-huddle scheme with the Mustangs' offense.

"I think we're actually picking it up good," said senior quarterback James St. Hill. "We've been out here since May, and we're picking up a lot of plays and everything. So if we get out here more and more and learn, we'll be ready for the first game."

St. Hill was among the Monticello players on hand for Saturday's Scrimmage Play 7-on-7 tournament at Charlottesville High School. But the Mustangs were missing several other potential starters because of prior commitments.

Woody said his focus this summer has been on the fundamentals of his new offense. He admitted to some expected growing pains, but said Saturday that he was pleased with his team's hustle and effort.

"At the end of the summer, once August 1 starts, after a couple more of these type of competitions, we'll have it all dialed in, and we'll be on time," Woody said. "Timing is a little off. But overall I'm pleased."

And St. Hill says he can see plenty of potential in the Mustangs' new offense.

"I think we might surprise some people. But I think we'll be a lot of fun," he said. "All we have to do is just work hard and have fun, and other than that we'll be fine."
