Spring Football: Nogales coach Sebastian Hernandez has pleasant first impressions

By Aram Tolegian, Staff Writer
First impressions aren’t everything when it comes to a football team, but new Nogales High School coach Sebastian Hernandez has liked what he’s seen from his players in their first week of spring practice. “The talent level is better than I thought when I first took the job,” Hernandez said. “I’m much more optimistic now. I thought there would be less talent judging from their record the past several years.” (To continue click thread)

Halftime use to be showtime at Nogales. Hernandez is trying to change that.

Hernandez estimated that the Nobles have 75 players program-wide participating in spring drills. But only 14 of them will be seniors, which means Nogales will be very young.

“The majority of the guys are going to be juniors and sophomores,” Hernandez said. “The most talent is in the younger classes, but the seniors are doing a great job of making everybody work hard.”

Nogales will be switching to Hernandez’s spread offense this season, which should be quite an adventure as the Nobles transition from running the wing.

Quarterback Keith Bolden, a junior-to-be, has opened eyes thus far. Bolden has the lead in the competition to be the next signal caller. If he wins the job, Hernandez thinks receiver Errol Romny will be his favorite target.

The Nobles have some size on both lines, something Hernandez thinks might be a strength led by junior-to-be Jaime Salazar, a wrestler who is 6-foot-3, 275 pounds and bench presses over 300 pounds. Hernandez expects Genaro Acosta to add to the line’s strength.

“We’re working a great deal on leadership and responsibility,” Hernandez said. “They’re taking to it. There’s some good talent here, but it’s raw talent. They’re fired up.”

    Now that we’re in that weak ass Valle Vista, watch Nogales win league, and make a run at a CIF title. With the new coach I feel we will be able to out hit, out play, and out coach any team in the league. Get ready for pain Valle Vista League!!!

    Sip the Kool Aid baby, don’t chug it. Nogales is going nowhere this season. except straight to the VVL cellar.

    When asked was he going to say anything different? Everyone looks athletic in shorts and t-shirts.

    I think it would be better to ask the questions after they actually put the pads on and practice. Maybe even after a scrimmage or non-league game.

  • wow

    This is a football story but the picture is of cheerleaders… What does that tell you? Fred, you’re hilarious!

  • southills dawgsss

    hey jim jones

    and good luck to coach Hernandez

  • I must say, as significantly as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a good grasp on the topic matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from more than one angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so considerably. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just heading for a gut reaction to the topic. Think about adjusting your very own thought process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.

  • Great beat ! I wish to apprentice while you amend your site, how can i subscribe for a blog site?.

  • Superb read. Your blog is worth a read everything. Couldnt agree more with that, very attractive article

  • This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  • Thanks for taking the time to debate this, I really feel strongly about it and love studying extra on this topic. If attainable, as you gain experience, would you thoughts updating your weblog with extra data? This can be very helpful for me.

  • Great! Thanks for post

  • Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
