Tigers have plenty of reasons for optimism as spring practice begins


The Holy Trinity football team goes through some drills during Tuesday's practice. With a number of different threats on offense, the Tigers are going to be tough to handle next season.


The Holy Trinity Tigers hit the field for the second day of spring practice on Tuesday and all indications are that the team will once again be young, but talented.

Led by all-state returners Jashaun Corbin and Joc Perry, the Tigers are preparing for their spring game at home against Jordan Christian Prep of Auburndale on May 20 at 7 p.m.

The Tigers will have multiple threats on offense with three players – Corbin, Perry and Preston Milo – all expected to get snaps at quarterback this season in addition to playing other positions.

Corbin, for example, will also play receiver and running back. Perry, a leader on both sides of the ball, will see time at tailback and linebacker.

Holy Trinity is looking to build off of last year’s playoff run.

“Yesterday was a good practice,” Holy Trinity coach Nate Hooks Jr. said before Tuesday’s session. “We have a lot of young guys, but skill players … we’re going to be loaded.

“We’re going to be even younger than we were last year. Our defense looks extremely promising. Our defense is going to be fast and aggressive. With all the skill players we have, our offense is going to be a threat.”
