Bulldogs settle into summer routine

The team is divided into three groups, with one group lifting weights, another group doing conditioning drills and the third group installing the offense and defense.

Most of the offense was installed during spring practice; now it's just a matter of adding the finishing touches and fine-tuning things, Hatten said.

"I'd say we got about 80 percent of it installed in the spring," he said. "We are going over the little tweaks, the trickery and some gimmick stuff that we always like to throw in there ... change-of-pace stuff or change-of-game stuff.

"We got most of it in during the spring, but we didn't get it polished. We had it, but it didn't look great."

Hatten, who led Pear River Community College in Mississippi to the 2004 National Championship, is no stranger to winning and he knows the value of hard work.

He also knows that players and coaches need downtime in the summer.

"It's summertime," Hatten said. "The kids show up at 8 o'clock (in the morning). And with summer workouts, you get them in here and get them out by about 10:15 or 10:30 and they have the rest of the day.
