Coach Buckelew seeks intensity from Shoal River Mustangs

Published: Wednesday, July 10, 2013 at 06:30 PM.

Buckelew praised the team’s discipline and the players’ way of handling some of the game’s finer points and said the team won’t be excessive, but it will be big enough to compete. He would like to see more fire from the players all of the time. “I think we’ve got to get used to working hard and playing hard the whole time,” he said. “We are used to working hard and playing hard in spurts. What you are trying to work up is the intensity where they are feeling it the whole time.

“You know we are probably going to be deep enough to spell (rest) some kids this year. We can do that, but we’ve just got to get them to get out there and get after it for two, three, four minutes ... whatever they have to give their all — and then we can sub in. I think just the steady consistency to hustle 100 percent of the time, so that’s what we are shooting for.”
