The Daleville Warhawks got the 2019 football season off to an energetic start with fall practices beginning last week.

New Daleville coach Desmond Lett was happy with the energy and intensity his team played with as fall camp began.

“I felt like things went pretty well,” Lett said. “I felt like, especially on Friday, we had a lot of energy. We had a lot of energy our first full day in pads fighting that heat on Friday, too.”

Lett said that he wants to make sure the intensity continues in practices, the Warhawk staff also closely monitors the heat situation.

“We’re taking extra precautions because of the heat, but I think (the players) have handled it pretty well so far,” Lett said.

The primary focus for Daleville early on in camp has been consistency.

“We just need to be more consistent with everything we’re doing out there,” Lett said. “Whether it’s offense or defense we have to be more consistent. That’s really what we’re focused on right now.”

Another focus for the Warhawks is building depth with some of the young players. Depth will be key, especially for a team that will field less than 30 players in 2019.

“It’s very important for us,” Lett said of building some depth. “Everyone out there is one snap away from going in (the game). So, we’re trying to get everybody out there as much live looks and first team looks as we can.”
