The Wildcats Football Team plays their next to last district game of the season on this game day Friday (November 1) and they are going to a place they may have never been to before, Kaufman’s Lions’ Stadium. Wildcats Football Coach Greg Owens remembers the stadium from his days playing there as Lindale’s head football coach. A journey back into Wildcats Football records as far as 1956 when Sulphur Springs went into Class 2A found no games at all between the two schools. This has been a disappointing season for both of these teams. They even have identical records: 1-5 in district play and tied for sixth place with Forney and 1-7 for the season. The Wildcats have a win over Forney while Kaufman won against Terrell. Needless to say, two hungry teams will be playing Friday. The Kaufman Head Coach is Jeramy Burleson, in his fourth year. He was an assistant and offensive coordinator at Kaufman for two years before being promoted to head coach. The Wildcats Head Football Coach is Greg Owens, in his 14th year at his alma mater. It should be a very competitive game. KSST Radio will bring you the Wildcats at Kaufman with streaming audio. The game will also be videotaped for replay later on Channel 18 on Suddenlink Cable.
The Lady Cats Volleyball Team is also playing on this Friday game day. They will play a playoff warm up game against Paris in the Main Gym at Sulphur Springs High School beginning at 4:30 p.m. The Lady Cats season record is 22-17. The Lady Cats are the fourth place district seed for the playoffs and the Lady Cats will play District 16-5A champion Hallsville in a bi-district matcn Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in Wagstaff Gym on the campus of Tyler Junior College. Hallsville has a season record of 30-12.
