After 18 days of spring football practice after school and during the school athletic period, spring football will wrap up with the annual Spring Game Friday night, May 17, at 6 p.m. at Gerald Prim Stadium.
Wildcats Football Coach Greg Owens said the game is for the players and gives them a competitive end to this year’s spring football. He said some players with injuries will not play.
Coach Owens said his biggest concern about the game is possible injuries. He wants all of his players to be healthy going into the summer and on into the beginning of football practice in August.
Coordinators Matt Young and Alex Guerra have split the players into Blue and White teams. Team quarterbacks will take turns taking snaps and will work with both Blue and White squads. Coach Owens said special teams work will be sprinkled in during the spring game, which is expected to last about two hours.
