The Wildcats travel to Corsicana for a Friday night (October 18) district game and the Head Football Coach of the Corsicana Tigers is Hal Wasson. He is in his first year as Tigers Head Football Coach. In a long coaching career, Coach Wasson has been involved in programs all over Texas. His most notable job was head coach at Southlake Carroll. He was there 11 years including a state championship year in 2011. Coach Wasson left there a couple of years ago under a cloud of alleged UIL rules violations. He was Director of Athletics for the Irving schools last year. Then he accepted one of the few jobs he said he would be interested in…at Corsicana. This is a homecoming for Wasson. He was born in nearby Kerens and attended Navarro Junior College. Wasson also coached on the Corsicana staff from 1982 through 1986. His Tigers lost their season opener this season to Burleson Centennial and then they reeled off five straight wins including four district victories. The Tigers perhaps got a wake up call last week as Royse City defeated them, 27-0. On offense three sophomores are leading the way for the Tigers: quarterback Solomon James and backs Damarius Daniels and Anthony Young. Senior Lane Fuentesand junior George Foster are solid receivers. Coach Wasson says defense is a strength for the Tigers. Defensive leaders include inside linebacker Tyler Farmer and outside linebacker Eric Dickson. Nose guard junior Brayshun Parrish is also a player. Corner Shemar Smith and safety Drew Denbow, both seniors, are secondary standouts.
