Pietrowski, Redhounds use preseason to gauge team's progress

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

With the regular season set to get underway next week, area teams were able to see their first action against an actual opponent this week, as opposed to going head-to-head in practice.

The Corbin Redhounds were busy this week as they hosted Harlan for a Tuesday evening affair and followed that up by traveling to face Perry County Central on Wednesday.

With those games in the books and no solid score to speak of, Corbin coach Tony Pietrowski said while he was pleased with some of what he saw, he admitted there was still some work to do.

“We kind of tied both scrimmages in together and used them as teaching tools and hot a long of different things on film,” he said. “As a coaching staff we’ll go in and look at these games and see what we need to work on.

“I was pleased with our effort and I feel like there are a lot of things to work on, but I also feel like the kids are already working hard in those areas we need to improve on,” he added. “Given the fact they are willing to get better, I’m happy with them so far.”

As for finally being able to face someone other than their own teammates, Pietrowski said seeing his team respond to actual opposition was a relief for he and his coaching staff.

“It’s the time of the year where it was getting to be a grind in practice because they know each other so well,” he said. “Our team learned a lot about themselves and our coaching staff learned a lot about our kids.

“In the end it was two really good scrimmages and like I said, I think we can take a lot of things from them that will make us better,” he added.
