Focus on Bartlesville High Football Spring Training

The Bartlesville High Bruin football players are giving it their all during spring football practice this week.

As the first week of football practice at Bartlesville High Spring comes to a close, first-year head coach Harry Wright feels most encouraged by what he’s seen.

“Our defense looked good today,” he said of Thursday’s unit. “We forced several turnovers. Our defense line looked good.”

The primary focus is on installing base offense and base defense in preparation for the Navy vs. White game scheduled for Saturday at Custer Stadium.

This will be the first chance for Bruin Grid fans to witness the early imprint of Wright and a largely retooled coaching staff on the team’s style.

In conjunction with the Navy vs. White action set to begin at 7 p.m. Saturday, Wright is celebrating the Bruin Grid tradition. Alumni games — involving several dozen former players — are scheduled for 6 p.m. to about 6:45 p.m., with the championship scheduled for about 8 p.m. after the Navy vs. White action ends.
