SNOOK, TX -- The Blue Jays welcome Scott Cummings (who is no stranger to the Brazos Valley having served as an assistant at A&M Consolidated, Navasota, and Cameron Yoe) to the fold as the new head coach and he will bring a whole new system with him.
He served as offensive coordinator at Harker Heights last season and will install a spread offense at Snook to replace the Wing-T system used by the outgoing Phillip Pearce.
Robert Lewis saw plenty of time at quarterback a year ago and will be the trigger man for the new-look Snook spread.
Lewis will have five returning starters on the line and district tri-newcomer of the year Jermaine Foster to work with, but will need young receivers to step up when the Blue Jays go to the air. Nine players who started on defense a year ago and gained experience return, which is good news for a unit that gave up nearly 33 points per game in 2011.
Still without a home stadium the Blue Jays will play eight road games and two “home” games at Stephen F. Austin Middle School in Bryan this season. Cummings says his Blue Jay’s district will be as tough as ever. “Burton and Milano will still be tough teams.
Somerville is moving down and has a lot of experience coming back. Bartlett and Granger traditionally have been tough in football. It will be a test each week.”
If Snook adapts well to their new coach and a different way of playing, they should be well on their way to more wins than they had in 2011 and a shot a playoff berth.
