Wildcats Head Football Coach Greg Owens says a major part of spring football practice is developing the offensive and defensive lines.
Jeremy Offutt is responsible for putting together the Wildcats offensive line. It’s something he enjoys. He says he really likes it when people don’t think his linemen are going to be very good. He says that drives them.
There have been just a few spring workouts so far, but Coach Offutt likes what he’s seeing from his guys. He likes the competition and Coach Offutt says he thinks the guys could be really good up front this year.
They are young for the most part. Coach Offutt says he has four that will be seniors this fall and the rest will be juniors and sophomores.
He likes their mentality that makes them want to get after people. He says they take coaching and they listen. Coach Offutt says they want to find a way to win. He likes the fact that they are always asking him questions.
He says he works hard to notice his linemen when they do things well because he says he sure tends to notice if they foul something up.
Coach Offutt played offensive lineman in high school at North Lamar and in college at Oklahoma State. He was also briefly on an NFL roster. He says he really likes coaching high school kids.
