Wiregrass Ranch a 'darn good football team'

Bulls coach Jeremy Shobe reviewed the images of last week's 42-17 loss to St. Petersburg trying to pinpoint the damage.

Shobe finished the session with one thought, "If we limited mistakes we're a darn good football team," he said.

Wiregrass Ranch had plenty of questions entering the game.

Some wondered how a revamped offensive line could perform? Shobe said they did a phenomenal job protecting quarterback James Tringali and helping the offense collect more than 400 yards of offense.

Tringali himself entered with questions. Last season, he was mistake prone. Last week, he threw for more than 250 yards with a touchdown and an interception on the Green Devils' 1-yard line, Shobe said.

Even the running game stood tall despite the absence of Nick Lamba (dehydration) and Jamie Barone (sprained ankle). Guys such as Jamel Nunez and Matt Terry helped the Bulls to more than 150 rushing yards. Lamba should be back for this week's Sunlake game, but

Barone might miss one more week, Shobe said.

Defensively and on special teams, Shobe still has concerns.

Overall, Shobe said, "We had our chances. Our kids are confident. We feel like we're okay, we'll be all right. Everybody knew it was a tough game. At least show we can do things during the game and we did that."
