Ponoka’s football program is hoping the spring will breed new life in the sport.

Senior Broncs’ offensive team have been executing a number of passing play drills during their practice sessions in their preparations for the upcoming football season.

Ponoka’s football program is hoping the spring will breed new life in the sport.

As the Broncs enter their fifth season, head coach Cody Baird is looking forward for this spring filled with training followed by a season beginning this fall.

“I’m excited at the prospect,” he said following the senior team’s first practice in full equipment on Monday, May 16.

“I’m totally comfortable with the numbers we have coming out and with the base that we were able to establish in previous seasons. Last season was the first step to having a polished team out there and this year we are going to continue with that progress and hopefully polish it to its fine finish.”

Baird added there are also 65 players registered for their bantam program, a nice number to have which includes a number of new and young players wish some experience.

Practices and tryouts started back on May 10 and will continue during the week, concluding with the spring jamboree on Saturday, May 28 in Lacombe.

Baird stated the players are picking the new defence and improvements to the offence really well and that should translate into improved play on the field.
