What is important in a scrimmage, for example the football scrimmage Aug. 13 at Fallbrook High School in which the Warriors faced Mount Carmel High School, isn't necessarily the score but rather how the players executed.

"It wasn't crisp," said Fallbrook head coach Troy Everhart. "I wasn't overly impressed."

The Warriors had 21 practices prior to the scrimmage. "I thought we could do a little bit better," Everhart said.

CIF football returns to fall after the 2020-21 games were held in March and April. The Warriors last played April 16 and began practice July 30. "I was hoping that we would have a little more retention, but overall very excited about their effort," Everhart said.

"All you can control is your effort, and the kids did a great job," Everhart said. "They were spirited. They played hard."

Fallbrook's defense only allowed the Sundevils to score one touchdown. "We executed in terms of making plays," Everhart said. "I was hoping for a little bit more."

A scrimmage, as opposed to a practice, provides competition against a team whose play strategies are unknown to the opponent. "We as coaches need to do a better job," Everhart said.

Scrimmages also provide experience to prepare for actual games. "Now we've got some more film that we can teach off of," Everhart said.

Fallbrook's first actual game of the 2021-22 season will be at home Aug. 20 against University City High School.
