Wildcats Football Coach Greg Owens Discusses 20 Seniors and Comments on North Forney Loss

Wildcats Football Coach Greg Owens wrapped up the 2019 season and talked about each of his twenty seniors on KSST Radio and Cable Channel 18’s Saturday Morning (November 9) Coach’s Show. The Wildcats lost their last district game of the season to North Forney, 70-13 last Friday at Gerald Prim Stadium on Senior Night. Coach Owens called the loss a hard pill to swallow. He called North Forney a fast and athletic team with lots of weapons. He said the Falcons also run an uptempo offense and use a lot of awkward formations to defend. Coach Owens said the Wildcats came out fighting and scored on their first drive of the game to take the lead. He said a turnover that put points of the board for North Forney shifted momentum. He added the Wildcats were unable to score after having the ball in key spots. Coach Owens said any game with North Forney usually results in a shootout and he added the Wildcats were unable to match the Falcons. He said the defense became sloppy and started missing some tackles. Then came some injuries to key defenders. Coach Owens said he did not think the Wildcats quit against North Forney although he admitted they got dispirited some as the game went along. He called North Forney the second most athletic team in the district but he said ironically they too will be missing the playoffs. Coach Owens said North Forney just lost to the wrong teams at the wrong time. Coach Owens also discussed each of the Wildcats twenty seniors telling some of his favorites stories about each one.
