The Wildcats’ varsity 7 on 7 football team won both games they played against Paris Tuesday at Paris. The Wildcats’ JV split a pair of games.
Wildcats Football Offensive Coordinator Matt Young said some 30 to 35 players participated. He said it was a great night although he mentioned he could see a little bit of rust since the 7 on 7 teams haven’t played anyone in a while. Still Coach Young said it was a good night for catching and throwing. He said he saw very few dropped passes.
Coach Young said Simeon Taylor caught some deep passes, Landry Tyson was able to get behind the Paris defense, Jase Thompson and Bryce McQueen worked the middle of the field, Austin Dodd worked across the field and Cason Goodson helped coming out of the backfield. Coach Young said both quarterbacks, Ryan Humphries and D’Corian Young, played really well. He said they showed accuracy and a great command of the offense. Coach Young said he enjoyed watching them work together.
He said 7 on 7 team members have been practicing in the Multipurpose Building about twice a week since school’s been out. They are preparing for two state qualifier tournaments coming up in June. One, involvng all East Texas teams, is in Tyler on Saturday, June 17 and the other, featuring lots of Metroplex teams, is in Rowlett on Friday, June 23.
