In the locker room following practice, members of the Los Alamos Hilltopper football program are staring at the only light in the room: a projected image on the back wall.
Before the projection, a clip of game film, even gets fully rolling; several of the Hilltoppers call out, “counter, counter!”
They’re right. The Valencia Jaguars are executing a counter-tray against the Hilltoppers’ upcoming opponents, the Los Lunas Tigers.
“You see that?” head coach Garett Williams asks no one in particular. “The defensive end stays there, he stays right there and he gets kicked out.”
