Though this Friday’s Wildcats scrimmage isn’t an official spring football game, it holds a lot of the significance for the coaching staff. With the spring game versus Trinity Catholic coming up on May 24, the scrimmage will be a chance for Coach Ryan Sulkowski to finalize his depth chart.

“There are still a few positions where a starter has not been named and we are using the rest of this week to evaluate those positions,” said Sulkowski.

The scrimmage will be used as a “measuring stick” to determine who will be in the starting line up against Trinity Catholic.

“Next week will be treated as a ‘game week’ in which only our returning players will practice and put in the offensive and defensive game plans,” he said.

In addition to the Wildcat scrimmage at 7 pm, middle school Bobcats fans will get an opportunity at 5 pm to see who will be on the field in the fall.
