Undefeated Wildcats Football Host Improved White County
Records continue to fall this season at Livingston Academy. The Wildcats are off to the best start in school history. Senior quarterback Will McDonald holds the school record for career passing yards and career passing touchdowns. Senior wide receiver Wesley Smith recently broke the school’s all time reception yardage record.
“I don’t know how much I get to enjoy (the success),” Lamb said. “I get to enjoy it Friday night when the game is over, so far. As soon as the game is over you get to enjoy it a little bit but the next day it’s back to work on the next week.”
This Friday Livingston looks to make it eight straight against a, 4-2, White County football team that had a bye week last week.
“They have had plenty time to prepare for us,” Lamb said. “That makes it tough. We know that they are going tot play their best no matter what. Coach Frasier has done a great job with those guys and turning that program around. He has them believing in what they do. It’s going to be very tough.”
Bye weeks present a multitude of opportunities for football teams this late in a season. One of those areas is health. Health is an important area of focus for most teams at any point of the season.
“The bye week definitely helped a lot of the guys who had some minor stuff going on, they are feeling a lot better,” White County head coach Mark Frasier said. “I’m not saying we are 100 percent. We have some key players that are still struggling a little bit. We feel like by Friday we will be in as good of shape as we will be for the rest of the year.”
Frasier used the bye week to sure some things up with his secondary in preparation for Livingston Academy’s passing attack.
“The longer you look at them the more nervous you get,” Frasier said. “They are solid everywhere. (McDonald) can really throw the football. He is the best thrower we have faced all year. They have two wide outs that get all the attention but they have several guys that can catch the ball.”
The Warriors and Wildcats square off Friday night in Overton County. Kickoff is set for 7 P.M.
