Wildcats Football Offensive Coordinator Matt Young has his list of things he would like to see the offensive achieve by the time they meet Mount Pleasant in their one and only scrimmage on Thursday, September 17 at Gerald Prim Stadium. First, Coach Young says he wants to make sure the offense keeps their energy level up. He notes players have been involved in football since the first day of The Edge back on June 8. Secondly, Coach Young says he wants the execution level to remain high. He says the players have to do things the right way. Third, Coach Young wants the offense to be physical. That’s one thing players have not been able to do so far this season since there have been rules against contact. That is expected to change Saturday. Even through the Wildcats can put on pads Wednesday, the UIL does not allow hard contact for several days after that. In assessing the 2020 Wildcats’ offense, Coach Young says they have a strong leadership group and have shown they are committed. He says the participation rate since the start of The Edge has been at about 85%. He says they have shown up and it has made them better. Coach Young says he expects the offensive line to be a strong part of the leadership group due to quite a bit of experience there. He also notes the Wildcats return a three year starter at running back in senior Caden Davis. Coach Young says the key is good work up front that will allow Davis to do what he does. He says everyone’s role is important on the offense. The Wildcats also have returning starting quarterback senior Kaden Wallace. Coach Young says Wallace is so much more comfortable now than he was last year. He says the difference is night and day. Coach Young says he is excited to see what Wallace can do under the Friday Night Lights this season. Coach Young also likes the makeup of his offensive assistant coaching staff. Former Lindale Head Coach Mike Meador is quarterback coach. Former Oklahoma State offensive lineman Jeremy Offutt is offensive lineman coach. Former Wildcat wide receiver Shane McQueen works with the receivers. Coach Young calls Assistant Coach Casey Jeter an energy guy who has a complicated job coaching B-backs, since they have to learn both blocking and receiving schemes. Coach Young is the running backs coach.
