Plano loses 42-3 to Allen

Plano’s kids tired hard but with an offensive game plan from 1961 they were unable to move the ball and that hung our defense out to dry and they were on the field too long.

Boyd last week showed Plano how to play Allen but either the powers to be didn’t take heed or are not capable of handling such a different assignment. Take your pick.

While the season is far from over and Plano’s record is now 2-2 and 1-1 in district this game showed how far Plano must go to even think about reaching the playoffs if this is the best game plan they can muster. The remaining  schedule is lined with tough teams all capable of beating Plano.

The disappointment with the Allen game is while Plano had a young offense last year they were only behind 21-13 at half while last night by half time the game was really over. Experts tend to agree that this is not one of Allen’s better defensive teams yet Plano could only muster 8 first downs and were out gained 520 yards to 179. The outlook is not good.
However the good news is that is the last time in 2014 Plano’s coaches will have to game plan for Allen.

WILDCATS win 35-14

While cooler weather and rain was in the air another feeling was felt around John Clark Stadium one that we had turned the clock back and it was really September 12, 1984. The talented Wildcats played like the powerhouse teams Coach Tommy Kimbrough and his fine staff fielded in those days.

Close to 50 running plays to only 9 passes. Close to 400 total yards and three running backs with around 100 yards rushing each and a quick hard hitting defense. Close your eyes and when the band struck up the Wildcats fight song you wished they would play it all night long and they did as Plano ran up and down the field against an over matched Hebron team.

Junior running back Brandon Stephens had 131 yards rushing and 4 TD’s while he was aided by Jr.running backs Lopaka Yoro 85 yards and 1 TD, and Jr. Full Back Bobby Gary’s 98 yards. Jr. QB Quinn Waterbury was 4 of 9 passing hitting Sr. Parker Meyers with 2 passes for 50 yards total. The offensive line of course played well, led by Sr. Beau Hott.

Plano’s defense held an outstanding Hebron running back in check most of the night and did not allow a pass reception. Cody Farhat once again provided a spark as he twice prevented TD’s with strong open field tackling. The specialty teams were aided by outstanding  play from Jr. T.J. Lee who also was strong on defense.

This of course was an enjoyable win for all, however next Thursday the two time defending state champion Allen Eagles will be at Clark Stadium to play our Wildcats. They are averaging more then 50 points per game this season. Unlike Hebron, Allen will complete passes against  Plano. How well can Plano play will indicate a lot as to the future of this talented and athletic Wildcat team. To play Allen and compete a team must be ready for their quick striking offense and their hard hitting defense. They are much better then John Tyler so be sure to be in attendance Thursday and see our young Wildcats as they will be tested by one of the top high school teams in America.

PLANOFOOTBALL.COM is predicting a Wildcat win so get your Cat Paws and wave them all night long.

Wildcats favored over Hebron Hawks this Friday

The  Wildcats will open their 2014 district 6 6-A season against a very strong Hebron Hawks team however Plano is expected to come out with a win based on their talent level and their strong win last week against Irving MacArthur.

Supported by a very stout running attack led by veteran Brandon Stephens and newcomer Lopaka Yoro they showed much promise for district play. The QB position manned by Jr. Quinn Waterbury who completed 77% of his passes last week also showed great promise.

The quick and hard hitting Plano defense played well as Sam Tecklenburg, Neema Behbahani, T.J. Lee, and the outstanding safety play of Cody Farhat showed all district type play as they held MacArthur to 20 points in the 34-20 win.

Hebron is very well coached which has presented a problem in the past however with the talent level of Plano with the influx of players from two winning feeder schools the Wildcats are primed to overcome past problems.

The game will start at 7:30p.m. at John Clark Stadium and will feature the exciting Plano Wildcat Band who as always will feature pre-game music along with a great half time show.
Come early and enjoy an evening watching your Wildcats as they begin their quest for their first district title in 9 years. Pick up plenty of Cat Paws as you enter the stadium as you will be using them all night long.

WILDCATS WIN WILDCATS WIN!!

The talented Plano Wildcats won their first game of the 2014 season with a convincing 34-20 win over Irving MacArthur at John Clark Stadium.

Led by RBs Brandon Stephens and Lopaka Yoro along with new starting QB Quinn Waterbury who was 7-9 in passing the offense looked very effective.

The defense led by Sam Tecklenburg and Cody Farhat was able to keep the Cardinals at bay most of the evening.

Except for a problem with clock management at the end of the first half that cost the Wildcats a TD the entire game was very positive for Plano.

The team opens district play next week on Friday at home against the Hebron Hawks.

Plano’s season record is now 1-1

WILDCATS ROUTED IN OPENER

The Plano Wildcats lost 30-12 to Tyler John Tyler last Friday in Tyler.

In an opener that reminded many of the opening game of the winless 2003 season Plano played strong defense until turnovers led to the final score.

The offense never got ontrack and only had 8 first downs for the 48 minute game.

The Plano head coach was quoted  in the Plano newspaper as taking the blame for the loss. We agree.

On a bright note for the dismal weekend the Wildcats JV’s won 16-6.

Both the Varsity and JV’s play Irving MacArthur this week see schedule for details.
