Conkin takes the helm of the Broncos

By Sandy Anderberg

Clarendon High School’s new head coach and Athletic Director Clint Conkin stepped on the field as the leader of the Broncos in a scrimmage held in Bovina last Friday night to kick off the 2017-18 football season.

Conkin brings 16 years of experience to the Broncos and is excited for the opportunity to guide the maroon and white.

According to Conkin, the Broncos are running a new offense this year and so far things are going well.

“Everybody did good (at the scrimmage),” Conkin said. “We are still learning the offense, but I was pleased with their execution.”

The Broncos finished one touchdown up on Bovina scoring three TD’s to their two. Bear Smith made good on one, and Collin Butler was able to find the end zone twice.

Defensively, Conkin felt the Broncos made a good showing as well.

“Our defense did well and had a good goal-line stand when Bovina was on the one. Both sides of the ball played well.”

The Broncos will face off against Electra at home in another scrimmage next Thursday night, August 24, beginning at 6:00 p.m.

“We still have a lot of work ahead of us, but we are excited and ready for the first game.”

After the Electra scrimmage, CHS will host “Meet the Broncos” on the football field. They will introduce the team at that time. As of now, they have 29 players on the varsity but will not play a junior varsity schedule. Seniors on the team are Andy Davis, Damarjae Cortez, Justin Christopher, Daquawne Oliver, Clay White, Nathan Shadle, and Colt Wood. There will be introductions of the cross-country team as well.
