Wildcats Offensive Coordinator Matt Young, after the conclusion of spring practices, says this year’s Wildcats’ offense has an incredible amount of potential. He says lots of offensive guys have already played on Friday night and they have answered the question of whether they can handle it and play at that speed and physicality.
Coach Young says he almost has to control his imagination about what is possible with this group. He says he has a lot of guys that can contribute. Coach Young says he is deep at wide receiver and running back. He adds he has multiple H backs. On the offensive line, Coach Young says their may be one player among ones he will depend on this fall who hasn’t played on Friday night.
He likes the senior leadership of several veteran players. Quarterback Ryan Humphries, receiver Simeon Taylor, offensive lineman Norris English and running back Lawrence Worth have two years on the varsity and offensive lineman Jesus Olivo played last year. Wide receiver Simeon Taylor has been turning heads with his play this spring. Coach Young says Taylor is healthier this spring. He also likes some little things he does that makes the team better.
Head Football Coach Greg Owens marveled recently about the Wildcats two varsity quarterbacks, Ryan Humphries and D’Corian Young. Both are athletic and speedy and they can also catch the ball if they are called upon to do it. Coach Young says both are great competitors and he says they grasp the offense in its entirety. He adds both the offense and the defense benefited this spring from going head to head against each other so many times.
