The Mosley Dolphin football team started out the year losing their first two games of the year thanks in part to taking on larger skills. The Dolphins finally chalked up a W with a win over Tallahassee Chiles last Friday night in a high scoring affair.
Mosley won on a two point conversion in overtime, and their offense has been one of their brighter spots so far this season- scoring 93 points in two games. However, on defense, the Fins gave up 49 points in a loss to Escambia, and 53 points in a win against Chiles.
Coach Jeremy Brown said he was proud of the way the guys came out initially, but the Dolphins, players and coaches alive, need to stay consistent.
"We came out the second half and we panicked a little bit," said Coach Brown of their match-up against Chiles on Friday. "They hit a couple of big runs and we stopped doing the stuff that got us there. That's on us as coaches and we addressed that this weekend in our meetings. A lot of it is still tackling. Tackling in space is one of the hardest things to do. They say the two hardest things to do in sports is hit a baseball and tackle in space. It's a matter of us continuing to work and continuing to get better."
Mosley's next game will be on Friday night as the Dolphins take on West Florida in their first district game of the year. Kickoff is at 7:00/CT at Tommy Oliver Stadium.
