Chaparral coach happy with progress of younger players

high school football:
Chaparral High football coach Bill Froman didn’t hesitate throwing younger players into the lineup last season, knowing the growing pains experienced early in their careers could turn into a good thing. Chaparral missed the playoffs by one game in finishing 4-5 overall, but the coach feels the program took a step in the right direction because some returning players got more than their share of varsity action.

high school football: Upgrades at Chaparral and Western include everything from multiple sets of uniforms and pads to a state-of-the-art weight room and other extras

But this would be a lot more fun. Minutes later, players were walking from the front office carrying large boxes with new helmets.

Saturday, October 13, 2012
high school football:
Walking up and down the Desert Pines High football team’s sideline Friday night during their 48-28 victory against Chaparral, it was obvious the Jaguars players had a different attitude. The Jaguars, after struggling to start the season, are a confident a bunch. And that makes them one of Division-IA’s most dangerous teams.

high school football: Antonio Thomas' near 200-yard rushing day and two touchdowns helps Chaparral end three-game skid against Eldorado
Chaparral High football coach Bill Froman knew winning the “Cleat Game” rivalry against Eldorado would a big deal. He just didn’t realize how emotional his players would become when they finally got their hands on the bronzed cleat NFL great Merlin Olsen donated to the rivalry in the 1970s. Chaparral’s Antonio Thomas rushed for 190 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries in leading the Cowboys to a 52-14 win.

Improved team strength could translate into wins for Chaparral
Thursday, August 23, 2012
Bill Froman became the Chaparral High football coach last May. By then, it was too late to fix the program’s biggest weaknesses: the players’ overall strength. Froman was the team’s third head coach in four years and knew from the first practice that his players lacked the proper weight training to be competitive. They won just one game.

high school football: Senior defensive end has several tackles for a loss, seals win with an interception for a touchdown
Determined to make up for lost time, Eldorado High defensive end Mike Williams was unstoppable Friday night in the Sundevils most important game of the season. The 6-foot-3, 240-pound Williams, who returned to the Eldorado lineup last week after missing the entire season with an enlarged spleen, was in the Chaparral backfield all night and sealed the Sundevils 48-21 victory in the annual “Cleat Game” with a 13-yard interception return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter.
