As I stated at the start of this post, it rained all day again today. As I've gotten wet enough the past week, I decided to stay inside the warm, dry fortress that is the Villa Skorpion.

Laundry, reading and web searching while waiting for the Blue Storms tape to be uploaded to HUDL took up the majority of my time.

Unfortunately, I am still awaiting our HUDL upload. Looks like I'll be indoors again most of Monday breaking down the Blue Storms video.

Several photos from the Blue Storm were posted on Face Book today, here are some of the ones I liked.

Review the Kicking Game units

Opening Kickoff

Lots of ground game by the
Blue Storms on the night

Dylan Auriemma's awesome
Kickoff Return

Did I mention that
Skorpions Field was wet?

Blue Storms Kickoff to start
the Second Half

I believe that this is #22 for the
Skorpions, CB Andrea Mora

Andrea was awarded the Game Hammer for his great play running across the field to force a last gasp fumble on what otherwise would have been a 60+ yard Blue Storm TD.

Mud Bowl

We simply need to improve
on offense QUICKLY!


Post-Game talk to the Skorpions

 I need to do a MUCH better job
coaching during the next two weeks

We have no games until April 7th when we host the Sant'Agata Knights (0-2) in a non-Group C contest. 

"Santa" Barbara Zanella and
Pietro Caprioli

Two of the many amazing, wonderful, hard working people who are the backbone of the Skorpions organization.

Reading Is FUNdamental

Old School
but a good, short read
