Gators focus on conditioning

Brunson reminded them the eight minutes was equal to just two-thirds of a 12-minute quarter of football.

“We’ve had a great summer,” Brunson said. “They’ve come to work. I don’t have anything but positive things to say.

“Baker kids know how to come out and work hard. We are going to go up tempo a little bit and we challenge our kids to have mental toughness and be responsible and do their job.”


The Gator coaching staff has mixed things up this summer, using some cross training techniques to prepare the players to be able to play fast for 48 minutes if needed.

Players have bought into the new training routine and they have embraced it, Brunson said.

There will be at least one new face on Baker's sidelines this fall. Keith White, a longtime Brunson assistant at Vernon and Crestview, joins the Gator staff after spending the last two years at Walton.
