What will Sachse’s football team look like when the 2016 season kicks off in late August?
No one knows for certain, but one thing is for sure; the construction process begins now.
More precisely, the building of the 2016 Mustangs is underway on the practice field at Sachse, where head coach Mark Behrens and his staff are trying to piece together another winning program.
Currently, parts of the puzzle already in place, such at quarterback, where junior-to-be and Div. I college prospect Jalen Mayden returns to run the Mustangs’ spread offense.
Also, ball carriers Kelon Wilson and Christian Cole are back, as well as other Mustang veterans at numerous positions.
However, two places where Behrens must fill some holes are along the offensive line and at cornerback.
“There are a lot of young inexperienced kids we’ve got (on the line),” Behrens said. “Everywhere else we are feeling good about … This is a good opportunity for some of these kids to show what they have been working (towards).”
The Mustangs began spring practice May 2, and it will continue through Tuesday, May 24, when Sachse holds is spring game.
After that, the Mustangs will have their summer work out program, with regular-season practice commencing in early August. The 2016 season kicks off Friday, Aug. 26 on the road against Byron Nelson at Northwest Stadium.
“We felt like we had out best offseason ever, and we’ve got to transfer it over, take it into the summer and take it from there,” Behrens said.
