Open Week Used Wisely; Wildcats prepare for final stretch run in District 13-4A race

Being a veteran coach has changed the way Greg Owens approaches an open week.

The Sulphur Springs Wildcats came into the open week after suffering back-to-back District 13-4A losses.

But Owens was anything but harsh to his team. He knows the players are in it for the long run. This time off can be good for them. Even if they have a bad taste in their mouths over the last two defeats.

“I used to think that an open week was a chance to get an extra week of practice. That we could go full speed for five days. It doesn’t work like that,” Owens said with a chuckle.

“The players get tired, they know they are practicing this week without and opponent,” Owens said. “They know we need work on some plays, but they also need rest.”

CUMBY — Last week's ground attack by the Cumby Trojans profited a muddy 34-8 homecoming victory over the Fruitvale Bobcats (1-5, 0-1).

Leading the charge for the Trojans against the fruitless Bobcats was exchange student senior Daniel “Cancun” Degetau rushing for 111 yards on 12 carries and two touchdowns. Degetau has seven TDs for the season for the Trojans second to the leading scorer teammate senior Michael Morris, who has eight.

“He has been a pleasant surprise,” Cumby Trojan head football coach Ed Perez said on his newest addition (Degetau). “He has added a whole other dimension to our team. We are lucky to have him for the whole year.”
