After receiving 12 penalities for 80 yards last week, North Dallas Coach Charles Moss took the high road when it came to talking about the referees.
“The refs do a pretty good job,” he said. “I’m not doing any finger-pointing.”
Moss makes a good point.
“You can’t do anything about it,” he said. “If it’s a violation, that’s part of the game.
“If you play good football, you don’t have anything to worry about. You have to take care of your side of the ball.”
North Dallas (3-3, 0-3) takes on Carrollton Newman Smith (1-5, 1-2) at 7 p.m. Thursday in a District 11-5A game at Standridge Stadium, 1330 Valwood Parkway in Carrollton.
Newman Smith’s district win was over Thomas Jefferson.
In previous games, North Dallas was penalized 12 times for 80 yards against Roosevelt; nine times for 55 yards against Hillcrest and 11 times for 85 yards against Woodrow Wilson.
Asked if he was upset about the penalties, Moss said, “Yes, I’m upset. Whether its game one or game six, we should not be making these mistakes.”
The Bulldogs coach attributes the mistakes to the players getting “rattled and nervous.”
“We have to pay attention to details,” Moss said. “We have to limit mistakes, execute and block. Then we’ll be successful.”
