The Mustang Broncos finished up the Edmond Santa Fe passing league on Thursday and quarterback, Chandler Garrett, feels like a lot was gained from the camp.
"We worked on a few things that we are going to run this fall," Garrett said. "It helped with timing and it helped develop some of the young receivers that we have. It really gives everybody a chance to make plays and if you can make plays in seven-on-seven, you can make plays in games."
The Broncos worked on different route packages and play memorization according to Garrett. He explained that the team would like to be a little more vertical than last season.
"We worked on some of the different routes, but we are really trying to get the ball deep," he said. "We will still have the inside routes and little out-routes, but with some of the guys we have this year, we want to get a little more vertical. I think we did a good job of that over the last couple of weeks at Santa Fe."
Garrett’s main targets this summer have been seniors, David Parker and Preston Ochoa. In order for the Broncos to air it out, Mustang’s signal caller explains he and his go-to guys, including Blake Williams as well, must be on the same page going into the fall.
"David and Preston have really done well this summer," Garrett said. "David and I got on the same page early at spring practice and team camp and Preston and I really got together a lot at the passing league. Preston is more of the slot receiver type and David is the type of guy that can really stretch the field. Combine that with our run game and offensive line and we’ve really got something going this year."
Mustang will continue workouts this summer, but with two camps in and a couple of months left to go, Garrett says the team is itching for the 2014 season.
"We can’t wait for it to get here," he said. "We’ve put in a lot of work this summer and made a lot of improvements at different things. We’re starting to get on the same page offensively and the defense is improving every day. It’s just a matter of time before we get to show it in a game."
