Kicking off the summer with progress on the gridiron in their first competition of workouts to prepare for the up coming 2018 football season, the Prescott Curley Wolves challenged several top-notch teams  in the Natural State last week in 7-on-7 tournaments hosted in Benton and Camden-Fairview.
The Curley Wolves utilized their talents and abilities to make productive plays during tournament competition against teams represented in all classifications at both tourney locations in Benton and Camden.
Prescott football head coach Tommy Poole was real pleased by the effort and play his Curley Wolves brought to the gridiron during both tourney competitions in Benton and Camden.
Poole strongly believes the Curley Wolves made a lot of progress and finished both 7-on-7 tournaments  productively to be a more polished football since wrapping up spring drills.
"I thought we competed both days and tied kids out at different positions and saw what they could do. I definitely believe we're a better team now before we came to compete," Poole said.
The Curley Wolves took action in Benton first and competed against Little Rock Christian Warriors, Forrest City Mustangs and the Mena Bearcats in pool play. The Wolves fell short to Hot Springs Lakeside Rams in first round of tournament action. LR Christian would go onto win Benton's 7-on-7 tournament for 2018.
In Camden, the Wolves faced host tourney team Camden-Fairview, El Dorado, Malvern and Ouachita Christian.
Poole always uses these types of competitions to keep his football team in good conditioning and develop their skill abilities and techniques to be effective and polished in their execution running plays to be prepared for the up coming season during the summer offseason.
Overall, Poole believed they got a lot of work and production in both football competitions and more importantly no injuries occurred.
"I thought we got a lot of good experience and work out these tournaments. It was good conditioning for us. We're not a 7-on-7 football team, we just try to get experience and get ready for the season. All the guys competed hard and no one got hurt. It's good experience for us," Poole said.
The Wolves will continue their weight lifting sessions and conditioning workouts for the remaining days of the month into dead week. In the month of July, the Wolves will return back to the gridiron for their summer football camp schedule as they'll host team camp July 12, 19 and 26 with the junior high and senior high teams working out in the mornings.
