Wildcats Offensive Coordinator Matt Young called Friday night’s 15-13 district loss to Terrell kinda heartbreaking and a tough one. He said the Wildcats’ offense played hard but did not make plays. Coach Young said the Wildcats offense had 11 penalties against 10 players. He said the focus in practice this week is attention to details. He said little mistakes can change an outcome on Friday night. Coach Young said the Wildcats gained about 400 yards and made 27 first downs but it was still not enough to get a win. He said he liked his team’s last drive until it did not produce a winning touchdown. Coach Young said coaches knew with a young team there would be roller coaster games but he said he hated that one had to happen in a district game. He said the offense has to move on. Coach Young said running backs Caden David and Choc Sims had good nights. They had 5 more receptions and as a pair they have 11 receptions, which would led the team. Coach Young also mentioned the play of receivers Bryson Lacy and Noe Ponce. He said quarterback Kaden Wallace had some growing pains. He said both of the Wildcats interceptions came on tipped balls. Coach Young said lineman Giovanni Pizano played very well. He said the Wildcats had a hard time overcoming at least one penalty on every drive in the game except one. Now the Wildcats face a very good Royse City defense. They are led by a nose guard, senior Jamie Cortez, who was the district’s Defensive MVP last year. Coach Young said he has gained 30 more pounds. He said the Royse City defense may be the best the Wildcats will face this season. They also have special returning players at inside linebacker, outside linebacker and at safety. Coach Young said the Wildcats offense needs to eliminate mistakes and make plays.
