The Galt High School Warrior football team faced off against Grace Davis last Friday night in a pre-season scrimmage.

The scrimmage gave new head coach Mervin Brookins a chance to see how they work against an opponent and learn what they still need to work on in the upcoming season.

The game started out better for Grace Davis, when the Warriors had trouble with placement and coverage. Grace Davis managed to make it into the endzone twice before the Warriors were able to respond.

Adjustments were made and Galt seemed to get in the grove when they were able to make it to the end zone twice and Grace Davis was visibly shaken. Scores weren’t kept and the coaches wanted to finish the practice game working on their offense.

New head coach Mervin Brookens called out the referees for not making calls when the safety of the players was at stake. He later told the parents that he would stand up for their boys when he thinks their safety is in jeopardy.

“Overall Friday night went well for our first action against an opponent,” Brookins said. “The boys graded out at a C+ against a pretty good Grace Davis, a well-established program coming off an undefeated regular season.”

Brookins said the biggest takeaway was riding the highs and lows of the game.

“We show progression and growth with consistent effort,” Brookins said. “We will be better next week. Come see what the hype is about Aug. 19 against Franklin High School (Stockton). Our 2022 home opener. We have shown the ‘Hype’ behind the Galt Warriors is real.”
