The good, the bad and the ugly. That’s how Wildcats Football Coach Greg Owens described the Wildcats scrimmage with Mount Pleasant Thursday night (September 17) at Gerald Prim Stadium. The two teams tied 14-14 in the scrimmage, which went 3-quarters with controlled kicking situations. He said it was about what he expected from a scrimmage where his team was seeing someone for the first time. It was live action and he said everyone got a little juiced up. Coach Owens said after he’s able to look at tape of the scrimmage, he would find that it’s never as bad as you thought nor as good as you thought. It’s somewhere in between. He said the Wildcats’ offense just needs to fix a few little things so they would be clicking. He said he was happy with how they moved the ball. Coach Owens said the Wildcats’ defense started slowly but then picked up the pace, got their motor running, and figured out what Mount Pleasant was doing. He said it took some time to get used to the Tigers’ speed on the edge. He said the defense also had to get used to some option plays from the Mount Pleasant offense. Coach Owens said he wasn’t sure what to make of a personal foul and a couple of pass interference flags called on the Wildcats. He said overall the scrimmage was good and he said it was good to be playing someone else. Coach Owens, putting on his Athletic Director hat, said he wanted to visit with Superintendent Michael Lamb on how the ticket process worked for the scrimmage. He said the videotape of the game would be very valuable as his coaching staff breaks it down and to show to the players so the kids know what to improve on. Coach Owens said he and his staff would be able to scout game one opponent, Frisco Wakeland, without leaving town. The Wolverines are coming to The Prim for a Friday evening scrimmage against Marshall. The Wildcats open the regular season next Friday at 7:30 p.m. against Wakeland at Toyota Stadium in Frisco.
