Elkhart head coach Jason Ives got his first look at what the Elks' new offense and defense against competition and the first-year head coach was pleased with what he saw.
"Offensively we moved the ball and defensively we looked better than we did in a while,"Ives said. "Overall the scrimmage went well."
Elkhart is running a new spread offense with Chris Yonts moving from running back to quarterback.
"For his first time on the field as a quarterback in a while, I thought Chris did a good job," Ives said. "He threw and ran the ball. We just have to continue working on our option reads."
Ives also said he liked what he saw from his offensive line and wide recievers including Austin Evans, Trent Lasiter and Tyler Farrow.
On defense, Ives highlighted the play of middle linebacker Brody Bingham and safeties Evans and Jonathan White.
"Our kids on defense had some big hits,"Ives said.
Elkhart's second scrimmage will be held Friday night at Elks Stadium against Eustace.
"I want to make sure we make the needed corrections," Ives said of Friday's scrimmage. "I don't want to see the same mistakes that we made last week."
