After a tough loss against Woodland Hills, the football team looks to rebound this Friday against Hampton.

The Highlanders are still trying to adapt to Coach Loran Cooley’s new style and hope to see improvement throughout the season.

“We enjoy Coach Cooley’s system, but we still need more time to get comfortable with it,” junior wide reciever Dre Howell said.

Although Baldwin lost to Woodland Hills 40-6 last Friday, the team saw leadership in the likes of junior Lucas Perfetti and senior Aaron Novak.

“Both of them took over in tough moments during the game and showed leadership traits,” Howell said.

The Highlanders hope to bounce back this Friday against the Talbots, who they defeated last year. The team plans to incorporate a new playing style they were not able to use against Woodland Hills.

“Cooley has a unique no-huddle offense. We look to add that into our game plan for Friday,” Howell said.
