Raiders on the mend; getting ready for opener with Gilbert
A difficult set of circumstances fell upon the Raiders of Collins-Maxwell/Baxter last week. It involved a football team, a shared illness and a public pool. Several of the Raiders fell ill after a trip to a local pool, putting their status in jeopardy for the school’s scrimmage on Friday. However, some good fortune allowed all of the boys to get some game reps, and most importantly, everyone is now back to full strength.
“It was a relief that we had everyone back,” CMB coach Rob Luther said. “All the guys played and were able to get some snaps.”
As for the on-the-field action, the Raiders’ spread offense looks about as lethal as ever. The first team took 14 snaps and scored six touchdowns, a ratio that wouldn’t bother Luther if it translated to the regular season. However, Luther downplayed the importance of the scrimmage compared to what it will be like when the Raiders take on Gilbert on Friday, Aug. 30.
