Cy Woods Wildcats
Head Coach: Trent Faith (8th season)
Lettermen R/L: 32/30
Starters O/D: 4/5
2018 Record: 7-4, 6-2
2019 Prediction: 2nd

After a less-than-wanted school-record of three straight consecutive seasons without postseason football, the Wildcats returned to the dance last season with a 7-3 regular season mark and a 6-2 dispatching of their fellow 14-6A opponents.

The better news for Cy Woods? A good chunk of that unit returns. The Wildcats return 32 letterman (including nine starters) and lost just 30 to graduation, the only non-second-year program in 14-6A to return more letterman than it lost. The strong-armed yet elusive Jackson Jones is back at quarterback, while the powerful running back Trayse Holmes will look to build on his 519 rushing yards from last season. Running back Cameron Sowell also makes his return, giving Cy Woods three key pieces back for their triple option attack. Defensively they’re no slouch either, as defensive back Chase Richter, who finished as the team’s leading tackler along with five interceptions last year, is one of five returning starters.

Just a couple of random duds against Tomball Memorial and Cy Ranch kept Cy Woods from a district title last season. Otherwise, they ended up on the right side of all their competitive games. While we predict they’re going to end up just shy of a district championship again this year, expect the Wildcats to be a force to be reckoned with in 14-6A this season.
