Outlook: The West Region schedule opens tonight and the Falcons continue to shuffle players around, some because they want to, some because they have to.
One player coach Jim Fairfield wanted to move was Cameron Estes, who moved from starting fullback to defensive tackle. Another player Fairfield had to move was offensive guard Shea Ruppert, who will start at center in place of his brother, Connor, who underwent an emergency appendectomy last Thursday. Shea Ruppert started at center in the Falcons’ 14-0 win over Tuba City and Fairfield said they had only one bobbled snap.
Fairfield said Parker runs a T-formation backfield and some wishbone. That kind of option offense forces the defense to account for all of the backs.
