The Sulphur Springs Wildcats begin work today to correct mistakes revealed in Friday’s football scrimmage against Liberty-Eylau.
The 3A power is picked to win District 13-3A and they showed why with a good performance against the Wildcats. The Leopards scored three times and allowed one score.
The Sulphur Springs defense came up with five turnovers in the game. Defensive coordinator Triston Abron said he thinks the defense is ahead of the pace from last year.
Matt Young, offensive coordinator also saw some good things and others which need to be corrected.
The coach said the team got solid reps which will allow the players to be evaluated.
Larry Pryor, in his first varsity action at quarterback, was 10 of 15 passing for over 150 yards, Young mentioned.
“Pryor made good decisions and got the ball to the playmakers,” Young said. “Quarterback Parker Aguilar also had some positives, completing a couple of balls downfield and keeping the tempo of the offense. Our offensive line continued the theme of the night - good but not great. Landon Watkins and Jess Jenkins were solid up front and Brady Carrell showed a high level of execution.”
Young continued, “The receivers had a consistent night catching the ball, led by Isaiah Lacy with a couple of big plays. C.J. Stephens showed some aggressiveness and willingness to do the dirty work. Overall, it was not the standard we want to meet, however we have to go to work Monday with the mindset that we are going to get better, get more physical and improve our individual technique.”
The Wildcats will scrimmage Friday at 7 p.m. at Royse City.
Sulphur Springs is practicing each weekday at 3 p.m.
Thursday will be media day for the Wildcats.
Sulphur Springs will play the football season opener in on Aug. 30 against (Tyler) Robert E. Lee at Gerald Prim Stadium at 7:30 p.m.
