The Glenbrook Apaches hit the road on Friday night to take part in the University Academy Jamboree in Alexandria.
Glenbrook's opponent was host, University Christian Academy (formerly CENLA Academy). Both teams came out swinging in the two quarter scrimmage, but unfortunately it would be UCA who would get the better of this contest.
First year head coach Chris Norton said he comes away from this game a little disappointed with the outcome, but not the effort.
Glenbrook showed some of its inexperience on offense by failing to reach the endzone in two quarters of action. However the Apaches showed flashes at time, and some of their problems shouldn't be hard to correct.
"We messed up a few times with alignment, guys not getting in the right spots, and our spacing," Norton said. "Those things are typical early in the season, but it's something we need to fix."
Things will need to get better quickly, because next up for Glenbrook will be their first regular season game against perennial class 3A power, Madison-Ridgeland Academy.
Starting the season with two quality opponent should bode well for the Apaches in the long run, as things should only get easier after Friday night.
"We have to get back to work," Norton said, "MRA is a great team, well coached and we're going to have to watch the film and get these young guys ready for that competition."
