Wildcat fans who are wondering where that offensive break-away threat will come from this season need to look no further than the track team. Three of the four members of last spring's 4x100-meter relay team are penciled in as offensive starters.
That's the same sprint relay team that placed fifth at the regional meet.
Junior running back Kendrick Daniel -- a transplanted SS resident who moved back here in the spring after two years in Irving -- along with senior receivers Alvin Frazier and Irvin Anderson, give the Wildcats three speedsters who can score from anywhere on the field.
And with a mostly inexperienced offensive line and a new quarterback, that kind of speed can take some of the pressure off the rest of the offense.
The Wildcat offense only has one full-time starter back from last season, left tackle Chris Sorley. But, Daniel was a two-year varsity starter at Irving, quarterback Justin Owens started last season in the victory over Wichita Falls Rider, and several other projected starters (Chad Evans, Frazier, Anderson, Dallin Sant, Cody Clayton, Tyler Halmerumal) saw plenty of time either as offensive back-ups, on defense or special teams
TIME OUT -- The Wildcats took a longer than usual break during mid-morning today for drug testing. ... There was a slight breeze during the late morning session, but temps were still around 100. ... The brief post-practice talk from head coach Greg Owens was all about the players focusing on the small things and not letting fatigue make them sloppy.
