Scrimmages, Powder Puff games bring football back to Memorial Stadium Friday

Pictured at a recent Powder Puff practice are Autumn Jackson, Tiffany Braddy, Elizabeth Renninger, Sarah Gibson, Logan Nevill Yasmine, Blue Tyrona Green, Tina Hauge, Jasmine Ruise, Rhondesia Clayton, Kallie Raulerson and Faith Finley.Football returns to Memorial Stadium this week with spring scrimmages and the Powder Puff game, all on May 18.

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.

Ruise, Crummey sign college commitments

Lady Wildcat basketball point guard Chelsey Ruise and the softball team’s Taylor Crummey both signed commitments to attend area colleges recently.

Ms. Ruise will be taking her wealth of skills to Edward Waters College next year after signing a scholarship letter on Wednesday, May 2 in the BCHS Media Center.

The entire Lady Wildcats basketball team watched as Ruise penned the contract to join the Lady Tigers. EWC Coach Charmaine Wilson was in attendance and praised Ruise for skills on and off the court.

“I really liked how Coach (Aaron) Summers talked about Chelsey’s leadership and how the team was a family. That’s what we are at EWC, we’re a family,” said Wilson.

Wilson will be entering her second year as EWC head coach and Ruise is expected to step right in and make an impact.

“We brought her in for a workout and they felt that she can come in and do something on the court that they’ve been really needing,” said her father, Wildcat boys’ head coach Charles Ruise. “If she reports in shape and ready to work they think she can have an instant impact.”

Ruise certainly had an impact this season for Summers’ Cats. She was the team’s top scorer with 410 points and a 22-point per game average. But she had more to do on the court than just score.

Bobcats join Wildcats for spring football training

On the ground (from right) Rashodd Hadley Darius Green, Drew Rogers and Hunter Chambers.Coach Ryan Sulkowski will be wearing a new hat as the Baker Wildcats launch the first week of spring football practice.

Sulkowski has taken over the middle school program for the spring.

“It will be exciting to see 175 kids on our practice field,” said Sulkowski. He is handling the middle school team while they look for a head coach to replace George McDuffie. Sulkowski likes the opportunity that gives him.

“We are making the middle school and high school program a seamless unit,” said the new Bobcats coach.

Danny Green did something similar during his tenure as Wildcat head coach. Though he didn’t go so far as to take over the middle school program, he installed the high school playbook on the middle school level. Green felt it enabled the middle schoolers to already have a working knowledge of the Wildcat playbook when they entered BCHS.
