By Rick Lomenlck Journal Sports Editor The first week of spring football practice for the Perkins-Tryon Demons had a little bit of everything surface. P-T joined prep grid programs from across the state in taking advantage of a brief window as the school year ended. The term ended for P-T at the end of last week but another week of workouts were held this week. "We need to find who can play and who can't to be honest with you," head coach Bruce Williams said after last Tuesday's work- out in shorts and shoulder pads. "But anytime you can go outside and practice football is good so we're excited to get out on the field ." While several areas look good as far as personnel, the Demons are a bit short of experienced offensive lineman as four positions are open from last year's 7-4 squad. The need for defensive linemen doesn't appear to be as critical with three returning players from last year. The task at hand for both areas will be to establish some depth. "Our first four guys will be really good so that's not really a concern but we need to get some younger guys to step up and take said. Look for the Demons to be solid in the skilled per- sonnel areas such as receiv- ers and offensive backs. Junior-to-be Austin Mages returns as the projected starter for a third season. Williams said Mages brings a wealth of talent and expe- rience to the position. "You can throw a lot of stuff at him and he already knows it so we're just pol- ishing things," Williams said. "There's not a lot of new learning but a lot of polish and that's very positive." Mages' primary backup will be Teagan Shepard who saw some action last DEMONS, Page A2 some reps off those guys The Perkins-Tryon Demons took advantage of a true spring-like day last Tuesday to take to the practice field for spring because we anticipate those football drills.
