Head Coach, Robbie Paulin, commented, ” It was fantastic to see all of the Community League teams represented today and the Junior Highland Wildcats too. The staff did a fantastic job and what impressed me most was the willingness of more experience players to help out new comers…Even when they weren’t in their own school team!”
The linemen split into their own individual group and were put through their paces by coaches Davie Grant and John Scott. They went through some athletic tests and footwork drills while the Wide Receivers and Quarterbacks worked on basic skills, followed with some Defensive Back basics. The session finished with some fast paced and competitive one on ones.
“I feel this is one of the most competitive groups we’ve had at this really early stage,” Paulin continued. “It’s looking really positive for the Community League next season but also for when these teams join together to form the Youth Highland Wildcats and – in some players cases – boost the Junior Highland Wildcats.”
“I would like to say a massive thanks to all the staff and helpers today: James Hudson, John Scott, Davie Grant, Mark Paulin, Liam MacKenzie, Nicola Muir, Jack Ghez, Scott Maclennan, Marion MacLeod, David Paulin and Alasdair MacLennan and all the players coming and putting in so much effort. The effort from the parents in transporting the guys through should also be recognised! Well done to the MVPs for today as well: Corin Robinson, Conor MacPhee, Marvin Skinner and Mattie Reffin. From a group that were so competitive and put in so much effort, they did a fantastic job to stand out!”
More media from the clinic, including pictures and videos, will follow in the next few days.
