Scouting report on Skyline

The Wildcats will travel Friday for their first round playoff game against the highly ranked power house Skyline Raiders out of District 9 5-A. The Raiders coached  by Reginald Samples have a 9-1 season record averaging 47.1 points per game while only giving up 17.8. Over the last 7 years the Raiders under Coach Samples have averaged 11 wins per season.Two years ago they reached the state semi finals with a 14-1 mark. 

The Raiders have been averaging 242 yards passing per game and 195 rushing per game this year. Their senior QB has close to 2000 yards passing completing over 60% of his passes. They will use, much like Allen, a host of young strong running backs to keep them fresh. They have a huge offensive line averaging over 300 lbs. per man. Their defensive line is also large with several down  line men going over 300 lbs. Their linebackers are very fast and tall.

On offense their number one receiver is 6-5 and extremely fast. They run a spread offense using a balanced attack of running  and passing

When they are on offense here are some players to watch:

#2  QB Sederian Copeland Sr. 6-2 215- Has 27 TD passes and only 1 interception this year. Can run very well and has several running TD’s this year.

#5  RB Da’Leon Ward So. 5-11 215- Top ball carrier with blazing speed and great power.

#9  WR Carlos Strickland Jr. 6-5 195- Best receiver with most catches on the team.

When they are on defense here are some players to watch:

#2 CB Cedric Collins Sr. 6-0  195-Very good at playing man to man. Great recovery speed.

#7  LB Anthony Wheeler Sr. 6-3 215- Best linebacker in area.

#99 DT Mycheahn Thomas Sr. 6-2 320 Huge defender with great quickness.

This is the second year in a row the Wildcats have met Skyline in the first round of the playoffs. Last year Skyline won that meeting 35- 14.They then went to the quarter finals before losing to Allen.

Skyline lost an early game this year to Arlington Martin 24-27  which has kept them from being ranked higher then their record would seem to indicate. A closer look at Skyline and Plano’s strength of schedules show that the 10 teams Skyline has played have a 45-53 seasonal mark while the 10 foes Plano played have a 55-45 seasonal mark.

Max Preps ranks every team in Texas. Skyline’s schedule shows their opponents average rankings this year was 432 while Plano’s was 157. The lower the ranking number the stronger the team. IE Allen was ranked number 1 in the state. Plano is ranked by Max Preps at #35 while Skyline is #33.

While where a team is ranked going in to a game doesn’t win games on the field however it does show that Plano has played a much tougher schedule. How this will translate onto the playing field will be seen Friday.

Plano’s strong defense will be tested by the large offensive people that Skyline presents along with their very accurate QB and tall speedy receivers. Plano offense will have to play error free football and maintain strict ball security to prevent turnoffs. They have to control the clock and finish drives with TD’s.

While the local press have Skyline as a favorite the Wildcats should feel good about their chances this year. All Wildcat fans need to plan on attending the game in force and being a factor in rooting the team on in what can be an outstanding win.

Wildcat lose,will play Skyline next Friday at Gopher Bowl

Plano played a team many consider to be the nations #1 high school team and while they lost 42-13 some solace can be gained by the fact that the Wildcats certainly did not help them selves with 3 lost fumbles,2 interceptions and a botched punt snap. Most of these errors occurred in Allen territory to either stop Plano drives and in all cases gave Allen tremendous field position. With these things factored in, only losing by 4 TDs isn’t what it might seem to be. At any level of football a team giving up six turn overs normally will lose the game.

Now on to the good news, this years Plano Wildcats have an excellent chance to redeem themselves and can when they travel to Gopher-Warrior Stadium  in Grand Prairie next  Friday at 7:30 p.m. to face Dallas Skyline.  Skyline is highly ranked and has a great season record of 9-1 however if the Wildcats put the Allen game in their rear view mirror and move on they still do possess an excellent defense and a time consuming offense. Many of their seasonal goals are still obtainable and are there for the taking. This Wildcat team is a very talented bunch who have overcome many injuries and set backs this season and yet have a fine 7-3 season mark and have a chance to make a long run in the playoffs.
Wildcat fans need to be in Grand Prairie Friday night to cheer our team on to victory.

Wildcats JV falls to Allen

The Plano Wildcats JV team ended their season at 5-5 after suffering a defeat against the fired up Allen Eagles 56-7.

The Wildcats never gave up, however to be fair, they were playing a team on the road who had over 70 players suited up and over 50 played while due to injuries and varsity moves ups the Wildcats had 30 players in uniform. The JV season has ended and they were found to be a hard working group and when at full strength a typical Wildcat team of ball controlling offense and a hard hitting defense.

Many of the JV players will be suited up and will travel to the playoff games with the varsity. So while their season of playing games is over they still will be very active as Plano Wildcats.

It has been fun watching these players and coaches who worked so hard to win and how much class they showed whether they won or loss. Thank you guys for an exciting season of JV football.

VINES go down swinging in Allen

 

With slightly more then 2:30 left in the games Vines was tied with Allen 14-14 however Allen managed to score a go ahead TD to gain the lead at 21-14 and then as Vines attempted to move the ball quickly down the field Allen ran a “pick six” in to make the final score of 28-14.

The Vikings offense lead by the hard nosed running of Cameron Ast and Darion Foster was able to gain control of the line of scrimmage for most of the game beginning midway in the second quarter until they tied the game with 5:04 left in the fourth quarter. The passing and catching duo of QB Denilson Ortega and WR Ehab Fares provided some fire works through the air as they had 6 completions with one 62 yard pass and run that moved the Vikings into position to score their first TD. Fares also caught a halfback pass from Ast to have 7 catches on the evening.

Allen suited up 83 players and used close to 50 of them while Vines had 32 players suited up for the game. Vines defense led by Tahj Taylor, Jackson Anstaett, Chase LoweCarson Bateman and company of hard nosed tacklers outfitted in their Wildcat Chicago Maroon uniforms never did quit and were fighting until the final gun.

The Vikings end their season with a 4-6 record against some of the toughest foes which included a road win at Flower Mound Marcus.

Here are the game stats:

SCORE: VINES 14  Allen:28

FIRST DOWNS: 16, TOTAL YARDS: 310, RUSHING: 195, PASSING: 115 yards, PUNTING: 2/29 yard average, PENALTIES: 0, FUMBLES: 2 lost: 1
