Springfield Fall Sports Preview

Football coach’s outlook: “I don’t like to predict or guess how our season will go. What I will say is that finally after five or six years of rough rides Springfield football is back in good shape, for sure we’ll show up every week.”    


  1. Coach, it's going to take more than just "showing up" the players need to learn fundamentals.
    In the last couple years tackling was terrible. The line seems to give up on blocking which rushes the QB and they make terrible split second decisions.
    You had a couple good ball carriers in the last year and I hope they taught the younger kids before they graduated, although they won't be able to get anywhere with a weak offensive line.
    I sincerely want the best for the players and this town. The booster club is finally supporting a sport besides soccer and I think it's great. I just hope with the pee wee program there will be kids that actually know how to play before 8th grade. Go Cosmos!

  2. These young adults are quick with their Smartphones. Is it legal to use them on the field ? Just a quick text to the guard or line backer next to you and now you'r winning !!!

  3. As a parent of one of the few youth who continues to play sports in this town I am proud of my son. He continues to battle it out on the gridiron and pushes his teammates to fight. It's been difficult year after year when he has had a different coach every one of those years until this one. Thank you to Coach Saypack and his staff for believing in our young Men!!
