Football staff anxious to reveal ‘Bone Crusher Attack’

David Pressgrove

Moffat County High School’s new head football coach Kip Hafey probably has either a big stack of phone cards or a large phone bill this summer.

Hafey has been assembling his coaching staff and putting together the blue prints for his football team over the phone from Greeley where he is taking classes.

The first official time that Bulldog high school football hopefuls will assemble will be at 6 p.m. Aug. 5 at the high school practice fields for the beginning of four days of camp.

“The purpose of the camp is to meet the new staff and get to know each other,” Hafey said. “We’re going to have fun and just get everybody back into the swing of things.”

After the week of 7-on-7 and drills at camp, official practice will start for the Bulldogs on Aug. 12. Hafey said the times and more information on the start of practice would be passed out at the Aug. 5 camp.

“I had a kid call me and ask when ‘Hell Week’ started,” Hafey said. “I told him that there would be no such thing and that we are going to focus on having fun, work on team building and becoming a family.”

Hafey’s staff will be: Lance Scranton, defensive coordinator; Chris Dralle, special teams and defensive line; Matt Ray, defensive backs; Jeff Simon, receiver and tight ends and Gary Torgerson, running backs. Hafey will be the offensive coordinator with the quarterbacks and offensive line under his command.

The coaches have created a theme for the season and it is “Bone Crusher Attack.” Hafey explained that “bone crusher” describes the team defense and that the team’s offense will always be on the “attack.”

“The kids experience this year will be 100 percent awesome,” Hafey said. “Our staff’s purpose this season will be to teach the young men how to be winners in the spiritual area, in their family lives and as football players. They all go hand in hand.

“Our goal is that we want to win every game no matter what the odds.” Hafey said.
