The Sulphur Springs Wildcats are sitting in pretty good shape after eight games played heading into a bye week.
The Wildcats, now 6-2, 3-1 in district, are open this week. Sulphur Springs head football coach Greg Owens gave the team Monday off but the team will work on fundamentals the rest of the week.
The Wildcats took the win to go 6-2 for the year and stay near the top of the District 13-4A football standings.
The win was also the 100th career coaching victory for Sulphur Springs native and Wildcats head football coach Greg Owens.
Sulphur Springs head football coach has milked his coaching career now for 100 total wins.
Owens knew one thing growing up on a dairy south of Sulphur Springs, he had to find an easier way to make a living that working on a dairy.
“It was up at 4 a.m. milking cows when it was 20 degrees and breaking ice out water troughs and working seven days a week,” Owens said. “I knew that wasn’t for me.”
