Torosyan, 23, who had no previous head football coaching experience before coming to Glendale, said he learned the nuances of coaching.
"[Spring practice was] not much of the Xs and Os part of the game," he said. "You have to make the kids understand why they're doing what they're doing."
Glendale, which went 2-8 a year ago, will have new starters at the skill positions.
The Nitros lost All-Area running back James Clay and his area-leading 1,501 rushing yards to graduation, as well as starting quarterback Anthony Darmiento.
"Running wise, we don't have a James Clay-type of guy who can pound the ball 30 times a game, but I have five qualities guys who can take reps," said Torosyan, who noted the impressive performances of running backs Nader Rahimi, David Archer and Haneef Smith during spring practices.
Quarterbacks Kyle Nessen and Victor Anaya will be in the mix for the starting spot.
"One guy has the arm and one guy has the legs," Torosyan said. "They bring a different type of game to the table."
Whoever gets the starting job under center, Torosyan said, will have, "six or seven quality receivers" to pass to, including Smiley Martinez and Arshak Abramyan.
Said Torosyan: "Patience is the key."
Most area teams concluded their spring practices in early June. That's not the case for Crescenta Valley, which started its workouts June 9.
The Falcons (3-8, 3-2 in the Pacific League last season) are just getting comfortable with the FieldTurf that was recently installed on the campus' football field. In past years, the Falcons, who went 2-3 in the College of the Canyons/Hart Passing League Tournament on June 10 at Canyons, had to practice on an uneven field that had plenty of divots and puddles.
That's not the case anymore, Crescenta Valley Coach Alan Eberhart said.
