Sulphur Springs began working on the upcoming game in Longview against Pine Tree as they installed plays during Monday’s practice.
    The Wildcats are coming off one of their more productive offensive showings with a 65-38 win over Hallsville.

    Sulphur Springs had more than 730 total yards and averaged 12.7 yards per play on offense. Willy Ivery had five touchdowns to bring his total to 24 in seven games. Ivery also went over 1,000 yards rushing for the season.
    “I thought our kids played really well Friday. Obviously, Willy was extremely explosive but our  offensive line did a great job up front,” said Matt Young, Sulphur Springs offensive coordinator. “Overall it was their best night, Jess Jenkins, Brady Carrell, John McLarry, Landon Watkins, Spencer Bramlett and Isaac Perez have steadily improved throughout the season and it was fun watching them Friday night. Along with the big runs come blocks downfield. Ben Brooks, C.J. Stephens, Mitchell DeYong and Isaiah Lacy were all very active downfield leading to some big runs.”
    Young added, “In the passing game, Larry Pryor has continued to make improvements from his accuracy to finding receivers through his progression, but their have been other improvements also.  The offensive line continues to improve in pass protection and our receiver’s routes are beating the man coverage.  Overall the kids played with a ton of enthusiasm Friday night and it was a pleasure to be a part of it. We still have things to work on and we have not reached our fullest potential which is always a goal we strive for each season.”
