Wildcat Football: Coordinators Review Kaufman Game; Look Ahead to North Forney
Wildcats Offensive Coordinator Matt Young Looks Back at Kaufman and Ahead to North Forney
Wildcats Offensive Coordinator Matt Young is seeking solutions to get the Wildcats back into a rhythm so they will play with confidence and with a swagger. The past two weeks this seems to be missing from the Wildcats offense. Coach Young said he has watched last Friday (November 2) night’s loss to Kaufman over and over, especially an abysmal first half, looking for answers. He has concluded that just when the Wildcats were on the verge of getting on a roll, something would happen. The cliché calls it shooting yourself in the foot. Coach Young said the problem is not overall poor execution but rather just one negative thing during a play. He noted that the Wildcats did have a better second half than the first one. North Forney is next for the Wildcats. Coach Young said their defense features two long defensive ends and physical play inside. He said the Falcons have a safety, Tre Barksdale, who is very active. Coach Young said North Forney’s linebackers react to plays in a hurry. He said they are a good team adding the Wildcats need to take care of their business and meet the challenge.
