Next year we have to replace some great seniors but we look forward to getting back to training and helping these student athletes continue to buy into the Wildcat way.”

For their final home game of the season, the Millard West Wildcats (green) took on the Bryan Bears (white) in a senior night matchup. After the half, many of the younger players got more experience playing valuable snaps. “Just coaching up the younger guys and giving them pointers is big,” senior linebacker Reid Hazen said. “All you can really do (when not playing) is coach them up and try and help them out as much as you can.” Millard West will continue their five game win streak against Lincoln Southwest on Oct. 28, at Seacrest Field in Lincoln.
