Whitehouse Wildcats Eager To Start New Tradition

The Whitehouse Wildcats are back on the field for their two-a-days workouts, but with a brand new attitude they hope changes their fortunes this season.

The Wildcats were just 1-9 last year, but new coach Randy McFarlin wants to put that behind them. McFarlin came from 3A power Daingerfield to revitalize a program that's been away from the playoffs for seven seasons. McFarlin says Whitehouse is ready for an attitude change.

"It's a thrill to work with kids that want to win," McFarlin says. "The whole community, parents and everything, wants a change. They want the football program to become competitive and that's where we're headed. It's just so exciting to see a bunch of kids begin a tradition here."

"I want to establish an attitude change, a winning attitude. That's been our number one plan, convincing them how good they can be."

The Wildcats are getting ready in a hurry, their first game will be zero week, August 27 against Palestine.
