At his weekly media gathering Tuesday (October 16) morning, Wildcats Football Coach Greg Owens said Corsicana is the best team the Wildcats have faced so far this season. He used the word athletic over and over to describe them.
Coach Owens said Corsicana’s talented quarterback and head coach’s son Blake Hoffman, is a point of emphasis for the Wildcats this week. He said Hoffman was the MVP of the Tigers’ district last year. Coach Owens said Hoffman is a better runner than passer but he added he can throw very well also. He said the Tigers also have a solid running back in Dajioun Nathan. Coach Owens said the Corsicana offensive line is not as big as Ennis’ but he said they are long guys that understand their scheme.
He said it would be very important for the Wildcats to tackle very well. Coach Owens said a missed tackle could mean six points against Corsicana. He said the Tigers’ defense has athleticism. Coach Owens said they are not super big but he added they are quick.
For the third district game in a row, he said a key to the game would be physicality in the offensive and defensive lines. Coach Owens said our district is all about being physical. He expects a great ballgame between two teams that are undefeated in district play and who will be battling for first place. He said he liked where the Wildcats are right now adding they control their own destiny.
