    The Wildcats are showing renewed vigor and excitement about the playoffs.

    Sulphur Springs head football coach Greg Owens said he did not know if all of his team members had grasp the fact that the Wildcats were now into postseason.
    After struggling in non-district, battling through 14-4A play, they are now in what many call  the “third season” or the playoffs.
    “We had a good practice Tuesday, we are showing more intensity,” Owens said. “We had a good installation day. We put in the game plan. We’ve had some pretty spirited practices. You have to play with a sense of urgency in the playoffs.”
    Denison comes into the playoffs losing their final district game 49-37 at McKinney North. The Yellow Jackets still managed to finish with a postseason berth.
    The Wildcats are riding a three-game winning streak as they closed out district with a flourish.
    Sulphur Springs won 65-28 over Hallsville; then pounded Pine Tree, 56-28 and had a happy Senior Night, mashing Marshall, 47-28.
    Owens said, “I don’t know if all that matters in the playoffs. Once you get in - everyone is 0-0. What you did in district does not help you in the postseason tournament.”
    Owens said, “Denison might be irritated and feel like they have something to prove. We have won three in a row, we feel like we are playing well. The thing with this team is we have gotten better with each game.”
    “We can’t be complacent just because we finished strong in district,” Owens said. “If you are complacent, you will go home. That’s the way it is in the playoffs. I want our team to be hungry, we’re just taking it one week at a time.”
