It is not something that will show up on any stat. It won’t go on the Bronco’s record. But it will be the direct result of every statistic and number.

The Mustang Broncos hosted their 7-on-7 passing league for day one last Tuesday night at Bronco Stadium. 
Mustang, Tuttle, Westmoore, Bethany and Edmond Santa Fe South were in attendance to get back on the gridiron and let the football fly.

With summer basketball and summer baseball going on the football team was missing a few players, but that may not be a bad thing.

“That got a lot of kids even more reps that needed the reps,” Mustang coach Ty Prestidge said.
Last year the Broncos had many young players on the field. This season the Broncos have many returning starters and a lot of players that have been on the field with real game experience.

“We’re a lot farther along than we have been anytime. We’ve got so many returning starters back. That makes a big difference,” said Prestidge. “We’re in pretty good shape X’s and O’s.”

One thing that Mustang expects of their players is that they do not quit hustling.

“I thought our kids gave good effort. The other schools here did the same. That’s what you want, kind of competition,” said Prestidge. “It was a good night. Nobody rolled an ankle or anything.”

Last season there were younger players out on the field this year they are the older players. The experience earned last season has helped the older players teach the younger athletes.

“It brings them along quicker because they’re not learning as much now. They’re repping stuff and they see the younger kids in their position doing something and they’ll coach them up. Last year everybody was learning,” Prestidge said. “The knowledge part of it, we’re in great shape. This is probably the most returning starters I think we’ve ever had. We also had a lot of kid’s start one or two that maybe not considered starters but they played a bunch last year.”
