With classes ending for the summer at Carlisle on Wednesday, the football Bison are taking a short break between spring and summer drills.


Defensive coordinator Lonnie Roberson, who worked with the football team during spring drills prior to joining his softball players for practice, said the Bison looked good.


“Obviously, they’re three years into the system, so they know the offense well,” he said of the Diamond T scheme brought in by Mark Uhiren. “The thing is going to be depth. There’s not a lot of depth. I think the number was 27, which was better than last year. You’ve just got to keep your fingers crossed that it stays there.


“Numbers are up, and I think definitely this will be a better year for those guys. Obviously, some tough competition moves into the conference with Earle.”


Carlisle finished 2-7 last season, including a 2-5 mark in the 2A-6 for sixth in the league — one spot out of the post-season.


Roberson said the Bison would start weight training after Memorial Day.


Uhiren was unavailable by press time.
