Wildcats Football Offensive Coordinator Matt Young said the offense did things a lot better Friday night (September 6) except win the game. He said the offense wanted to eliminate foolish penalties and he said they did better but still had a couple. Coach Young said the offense must value the rock (football). He noted an interception in the red zone and a fumble in the pocket. Still Coach Young said the Wildcats’ offensive execution was way up Friday. He said it was at 47% for the entire game Friday. In week one, the Wildcats executed at 47% during the first half but only at 31% for the second half. Coach Young said the Wildcats offense must finish. He said he liked the play of quarterback Kaden Wallace. He said 10 people caught passes and three running backs had carries. Coach Young said he liked that the offense struggled but then came back and fought. He said the offensive line was required to block every defensive front imaginable. He called the Lovejoy defensive line game plan similar to a playoff game. Coach Young said the offensive line would struggle and then would gash open a hole for a big run. He praised offensive linemen Chandler Leo and Giovanni Pizano and wide receivers Detrick Clayton, Kylan Wade, Bryant Sanchez and Chase Haney. Coach Young also commented on the Terrell defense his offense will see Friday night at Terrell. He said they reminded him of a Paris defense from 5 or 6 years ago. He said they are not complicated but they play fast and hard. Coach Young said the Tigers have one of the best linebackers in the district (Jaquavious Morris) who also plays running back. He said the Tigers secondary limits space. He said eight or nine of the Tigers play both offense and defense. Coach Young hopes the Wildcats can fatigue the Tigers defense linemen. He said Terrell has been in both of their ballgames this season but have tired near the end. He said the focus is still on the Wildcats. Coach Young said if the offense does it’s job, they are hard to keep out of the end zone. He complimented the Wildcats for how well they practice.
