Wildcats Football Coach Greg Owens says his team has their back up against the wall as the travel to Corsicana for a district game Friday (October 18) at 7:30 p.m. at Tiger Stadium. Coach Owens discussed the Wildcats and Tigers at his weekly media gathering Wednsday morning. The Wildcats enter play Friday 1-3 in district play and tied for sixth place with Forney. The Wildcats season record is 1-5. Corsicana is 4-1 in district play and in second place, one game behind first place Ennis. The Tigers season record is 5-2. Coach Owens says Corsicana is athletic and fast but perhaps not as disciplined as Royse City or Ennis. However he says the Tigers are equally scary as those two because they are explosive and can make plays. Coach Owens says Corsicana has a bad taste in their mouth after a 27-0 loss at Royse City last Friday. He says there is a lot at stake for them also. He says Corsicana sophomore quarterback Solomon James can really chunk the football and he says the Tigers have guys who can go get it. Coach Owens says what really scares him is the thought of James getting out of the pocket and running. He says the Tigers have a good consistent offensive line. Coach Owens is also impressed by sophomore running back Damarius Daniels. He says the Wildcats defense must bottle up those two. Two linebackers impress Coach Owens: outside linebacker Eric Dickson and inside linebacker Tyler Farmer. Nose guard Brayshun Parrish has also attracted Coach Owens’ attention. Playing this defense, Coach Owens says the Wildcats must avoid turnovers and penalty flags and keep their composure.
