Ready! Set! Go! The Cinco Ranch football team prepares for a new season ready to take on the field. As of now, they are working on technical principles, team dedication and growing as a family to help improve the team’s overall success. Assistant coach JD Fincher, says the team has been busy all off season working hard on improvement. 

“I believe the players have focused on going back to their fundamentals and learning the scheme of our defense and offense better so we can be better prepared to execute,” Fincher said.

The players have been working through the off-season conditioning program in order to reach their goals. The Cougars had a tough time last year finishing with three and seven record, and though the team was disappointed, they are not backing down on each other. The players have been working on their fundamentals and doing their part to make sure that the defense and offense are working together.

“We have to be able to improve our fundamentals and execute to make sure the plays go right. Last year we made critical mistakes at critical times,” Fincher said. 

Senior Roger Sanguinetti, the team placekicker, spoke about switching things up with their teammates. He said the players are striving to be more than just people they play football with. They are becoming a family. 

“I can see Coach Dudley changing the culture already. This year it’s more of a brotherhood and family,” Sanguinetti said.

The players have been working on their fundamentals and team chemistry to achieve a successful football season. 

“They’ve changed the reasons why we’re playing. Now we play for each other and not ourselves,” Sanguinetti said.
