A REALITY CHECK FOR THE BUCCS...
The Covington Buccaneers have plenty of work to do prior to the season as evident by the effort given in a scrimmage against Milton.
LOOKIN' FOR ROOM...
was freshman Kyler Deeter and the Buccaneer backs against an aggressive Milton defense.

August 11, 2009 - WEST MILTON
The Covington Buccaneers traveled to West Milton Tuesday for their first full contact scrimmage and didn't look anything like the football team with the high expectations they have for themselves.

"That was embarrassing," said Covington coach Dave Miller after his team surrendered a total of six touchdowns and was held scoreless on the afternoon. "There's no other way to put it."

The host Bulldogs scored three times in ten-play situations, twice on long pass plays and once on a long run when it appeared as though the Buccaneer defense had the play snuffed out in the backfield.

Milton then scored three more times in down-and-distance situations, once again all three coming on long pass plays against the Buccaneer secondary.

It was visibly obvious throughout the scrimmage that Milton played much faster than Covington.

"We looked slow," Miller said. "Covington football is about flying around 100 miles per hour on every play and we didn't do that tonight."

Covington's offense didn't fair any better than the defense. Other than a few nice runs, the offense was inconsistent in moving the ball as the Milton defense held Covington in check the entire evening. Much of that was due to the constant penetration into the backfield by the Bulldog defensive front against the experienced Buccaneer offensive line.

"We just got our tails whipped," Miller explained. "We are not tough enough right now, at least we didn't play that way. We have a lot of things to work on before the season starts."

Fortunately for Covington it has two weeks and two more scrimmages to right the ship before opening at New Bremen on August 28.

The Buccs host Eaton this Friday before traveling to Versailles on August 21.

"That's the good thing," said Miller. "We have to put this effort behind us and come out on Friday and give a much better effort. It all starts in practice tomorrow - getting better on every snap."

It's back to work for the Buccaneers after a reality check.
