Varsity - First in Ten

Posted by Coach Moilan on 10/16/2020

For the first time in ten years, the Cougar Football team is headed to the playoffs!

For those of you that have been around WHHS for the years that my staff has been at Western Hills, you know it’s been a long haul!  We appreciate all the support and help for our boys over the years!  

Last night, the boys earned their trip into the playoffs with a 27-0 win over Eastern Hills.  The defense played lights out and earned the shut out. Caleb Clark once again led the team in tackles. Tahj Wade had a great game on the defensive line and Tony Pascall and Deion Williams secured the corner spot and completely shut down the passing game. Our defensive coaching staff did a great job!

On the offensive side, we started a bit slow, but finally got things going when QB Keyon Butler connected on a 48 yard touchdown pass to Tre Brewster. Jason Green added two other touchdowns and Keyon also scored on a 1 yard QB sneak. The offensive coaches did a great job of fighting through the slow start and keeping the boys going.

Jude Collins continued to impress. He knocked in three extra points and more importantly had two huge touchbacks. We are so happy that his dad has had the chance to coach him on the gridiron his senior season and has done a great job of giving us an extra edge with a fantastic kicking game.

Up next? Next Friday, we play at Kennedale. We then have Dunbar and Carter Riverside to finish out the regular season. We do not have those dates, times, or location as of yet.
