Brady Driver, a sophomore this coming school year, is expected to get most of the quarterback reps. Coach Young said quarterback Matthew Mitchell, a junior next year, will not attend due to a baseball tournament he will be playing in.
He said some of Driver’s favorite targets Saturday would be Matthew Sherman, Carson Fenton, C.J. Williams, Reed Williams and Colt Silman.
Coach Young said leaders on defense for the Wildcats Saturday would include Dominique Sims, Gavin Johnson, Wylie Hammond, Silman, Aiden Stribling, Driver, Austin Chaney, Braden Morris, Devon Franklin, Douglas Deloney and J.J. Hall.
