The work continues for Sulphur Springs 7-on-7 teams as they get into the competitive days of summer.
The teams participate in scrimmages each Thursday. Recently the teams traveled to Gilmer to go up against some of the toughest competition around.
“Some of the best teams I have seen this year are Gilmer and Daingerfield,” said Sulphur Springs head football coach Greg Owens. “We want to go against the best so we will improve. We are still working on timing and running better pass routes.”
Sulphur Springs recently won first place inthe Garland Lakeview Centennial 7-on-7 event.
The Wildcats won 56-13 over Lakeview’s B team; downed West Mesquite, 46-12; beat Rowlett, 40-18 and for the title defeated the host team Lakeview “A” 28-24 in a thrilling contest decided in the final seconds.
The Sulphur Springs offense and defense were both credited by coaches with having played well. Colton Lee threw 25 touchdowns with just three interceptions.
The Wildcat defense allowed an average of 16.7 points per game, very low by 7-on-7 standards.
The squad will scrimmage June 18 at home against Gilmer and other teams from the area.
Sulphur Springs will compete June 20 in a state qualifying tournament at Tyler Lee. Times for the event will be released later. The top two teams in each category will advance to the state finals.
“We recently scrimmaged the 2008 team,” said Sulphur Springs offensive coordinator Jeff Riordan, “The old team knows how to win — but all of our teams are improving.”
