Only a few teams in the state of Texas have a happy ending to the football season.
It happened in Sulphur Springs in 2008 as the Wildcats went 14-2 and won the final game 69-49 over Dayton for the Class 4A Div. II title.
The Wildcats saw this season come crashing to a halt with the 70-33 loss to Wylie East.
It was a rude end to a good year.
The Wildcats played 11 games, winning 8 of them scoring 515 points and allowing 434. Sulphur Springs was 4-1 at home, 4-1 away and 0-1 on a neutral field.
The team ended the year with a 1,000-plus yard rusher, Buddy Ivery. He had 1,332 yards (7.2 average) in 10 games played. Brad Macek completed 73 percent off his passes throwing 25 touchdown passes and rolling up 2,364 yards. Cole Hill got his name in the record book with 76 catches for 1,060 yards. Willy Ivery had 914 yards rushing, 674 yards receiving and 509 yards on kick returns. He also led the team, scoring 174 points.
