Wildcats Building History & Aiming Higher

Friday night, the Whitehouse Wildcats finally get to hit somebody else.

"It feels pretty good," senior center Matt Struble said. "After spring football and two-a-days, you're so used to facing yourself, it feels good to finally play against somebody else."

Friday, they go to Carthage for their first and only scrimmage of the year, and try and build on their first-ever back-to-back playoff seasons.

"It's exciting, we're just ready to face the challenge," senior wide receiver Ryan Bell said, "and go further than last year. That loss last season really hurt."

"The coaches have been saying to take it to the next level," Struble said. "We got there two years in a row, now it's time to get on to a state championship."

Returning is all-state quarterback Brady Attaway, whose receivers know what to expect from his passes.

"It's actually kind of hard to miss," Bell laughs. "He kind of sticks it in there, it's coming pretty good."

For now, the Wildcats are just ready to hit somebody wearing a different jersey.

"We've been working all summer in the weight room," Bell said. "It'll feel good to finally hit somebody."

    With the smallest enrollment in District 17-5A, and really across the entire classification, Lindale could use that as an excuse for a sub-par season. But under defensive coordinator, turned head coach Chris Cochran, that won't be the case.
