Wildcats Offensive Coordinator Matt Young said the Wildcats’ offense did not get into the end zone enough last Friday night (October 25) at The Prim against Greenville. He said some offensive guys did some good things last week but he added little things continued to hamper the Wildcats. Wildcats quarterback Kaden Wallace was injured against Greenville and may be a game time decision as far as playing against Kaufman Friday. Back up quarterback Noe Ponce was pressed into service last week. Coach Young said the Wildcats were successful for a while running a bigger package. Coach Young said the Wildcats got close on a couple of drives but ended up having to settle for two field goals. He said Cameron Kaufert, who was playing a lot at defensive tackle, also played a lot on offense as part of the bigger package. Coach Young said the Wildcats offensive line did a good job. He singled out Steven Jonaitis, Raydon McCormack, Alfredo Olavide, Ryan Hammons and Chandler Leo. Coach Young said backs Choc Sims and Caden Davis ran hard. The Wildcats suffered two interceptions and Coach Young said the first one hurt a lot. He said the Wildcats just did not do enough to get a win. Concerning Kaufman, Coach Young said the Lions are big and strong up front. He said they would present a challenge for the Wildcats big guys in both the running game and pass protection. Three or four of the Lions’ defensive front are seniors who can give an offense fits. The Lions quarterback Billy Pullen, a 250-pounder, also plays middle linebacker. Coach Young said the Lions’ secondary features fast guys who will man receivers up. He said he believes the Wildcats will have success moving the ball Friday and he added \they will have to have success scoring touchdowns inside the ten yard line to be successful Friday night. Coach Young said the Wildcats have a chance to end their season with two wins. He said almost all playoff teams end their season with a loss.
