“We are excited about the new places and new faces,” said SSHS Athletic Director and Football Head Coach Gregg Owens as the new district alignments were announced Thursday morning.  Owens said, “It will be a new challenge with new teams, but the biggest challenge [for football] will be the nine (9) team district.” He said a team must win a lot of games to get in the playoffs. “It’s really exciting because it’s different,” he said.

Wildcat football will play a two game non-district 2018 schedule that includes Frisco Wakeland and Lucus-Lovejoy.
