Staub leads first official practice

POINT BORO — The Point Boro football team practiced what it preached in its first official practice on Monday.

Coach Staub Leads First Practice

“Start fast and finish strong,” is something the entire Panther program stresses each day. On Monday, Boro had the opportunity to begin their 2018 campaign with the first part of their motto. “Today was a solid opening day,” Staub said. “Today we started on a fast note. The kids were flying around and every player, as well as the coaches, were extremely excited to be out there.”

The opening practice was not the only first time for the Panthers with Staub having his first official practice as the head coach of the program.

It is also the first year Boro will be competing in the Liberty Division. The Panthers gathered around Staub on Monday as he addressed the team, setting the tone for what is to come.

“When you walk off that field, you have to be able to answer, you gave everything physically, emotionally, mentally to this program,” Staub said. “Get better.”

After graduating 15 players from last year’s team, many players had their first taste of varsity and some veteran players transitioned to their new roles. After leading the team in tackles with 97 last year, Garrett Romer used Monday to adapt into his role as quarterback.

Not just trying to fill out the physical role of the position, but Romer is also trying to be a leader for the Panthers.

“It was just about getting through our first practice, tried running the offense, I just had to get through it and be as clean as possible,” Romer said. “That was the first step.”
