HS Football Previews: London Pirates

CORPUS CHRISTI - The main focus at this year's Pirates two-a-day camp - improvement. Coach Robbie Moreno is expecting a lot of improvement from the team's first year of football a season ago.

"If we had a secret weapon hopefully it's that - I think it's their youth and they don't know any better and what I mean by that is they're willing to take risks and do unorthodox things with our spread offense," Moreno said. "We do a lot of creative sets and so on so hopefully the element of surprise that we can give our opponents this year."

The Pirates played a full varsity schedule in their first season a year ago with 16 freshman and 7 sophomores. Add 13 freshmen to this year's club, and a lot of hard work in the offseason.

"Our line got stronger our backers got stronger mentally and that's a good thing and that's going to help us a lot on the team," running back Jose Briones said.

Coach Moreno said the Pirates have put in a lot of work and have a better understanding of the game. London will run a spread offense and the players have bulked up in the offseason thanks to hard work in the weight room.

"I expect to do great. I expect our team to do great," linebacker Matt Powell said. "I expect our weaknesses to become our strengths and I expect to be a great team."
