Lakewood intent on maintaining routine

With Tracy Johnson beginning his first year as a starting quarterback and receivers Rodney Adams and Jaquel Cooper transferring in from St. Petersburg Catholic in the offseason, Lakewood coach Cory Moore had the entire offense and defense in the spring so his new starters could get a head start in picking up everything.

Moore hopes to see the benefits this fall.

"I wanted to get as much done in the spring so we could spend the summer fine-tuning things and not worry about teaching once we got back in the fall," Moore said. "The biggest thing we wanted to have with the start of practice is keeping the same routine."

Though there are a lot of new faces, the Spartans could be explosive on offense. And the defense should get better with the return of most starters, including lineman Dante Fowler, a five-star recruit who has committed to Florida State.

"We have a lot of young talent, and we've filled in spots on defense and have more depth," Fowler said. "I expect us to do great things this year. We should make a deep run in the playoffs."
