"It's good for us," Bear Fenimore said of the 7-on-7. "We put a lot of new things in this year. This is a good competition for them … there are a lot of good teams and players out here."
It especially served as a nice chance for Westwood to work on its passing tree. With Fenimore's strong arm and accurate deep ball, the Warriors are looking to test defenses down the field more often.
"I am really looking forward to it," Fenimore said of the shift. "It's a lot of fun. Don't get me wrong, you can never go wrong with taking the right check down. But whenever I get a chance to try and get something long, we've got to take it."
Westwood has had a highly successful run in recent 7-on-7 tournaments, and qualified yet again for State at their first tournament of the year.
"Making it to the state tournament is definitely what we're all about," Fenimore said.
On the recruiting front, things are also going well for the Westwood quarterback. As of now, Fenimore has plans to attend camps at Mississippi State and at Georgia this summer. Illinois offered earlier in the process, and he has another offer, that he declined to mention, that he's high on.
"There's a school that I like out there [that has offered]," Fenimore said. "We'll see what happens."
What is Fenimore looking for in a college of choice?
"I'm looking at just the players in general. The coaching staff might not be there for your whole career," Fenimore said. "You've got to love the university for itself. I want to look back four years from now and be proud of the university that I chose."
