Since first stepping on campus, rookie head coach Terence Cahee has been clear about his vision for the Wossman football program.
"Why not us?" is one of the mottos used in and around the fieldhouse and has even made its way into the community. With a fresh outlook on a championship-ladened program, Cahee could be just what is needed to get Wossman back into the championship picture.
It all starts with his first team consisting of 13 returning starters including several key skill players that could help Cahee's potent offense strike at will. Offensively, quarterback Tristan Wooten is expected to lead the spread offense behind an experienced offensive line. The veterans working in the trenches increase the chances for Wooten to connect with big-play threat Johnny Woods, who has impressed at multiple camps over the summer with his blazing fast speed. Woods, a Class 3A 100 Meter Champion, has been clocked in the 4.3 range at every camp he's attended.
On defense, a ton of experience returns in the secondary with the likes of Sam Farmer and Jordynn Williams leading the unit. Up front, the line will be anchored by junior Jayden Williams.
Wossman's non-district slate includes impressive competition from across the northern part of the state. In Week 1, the Wildcats open on the road at Booker T. Washington before returning home to face off against the high-octane Northwood squad from Shreveport. After an open week, Wossman welcomes Calvary Baptist in Week 4 for a final pre-district tune up.
In a revamped District 1-3A, Wossman hosts North Webster, Carroll and Bastrop while traveling to Richwood plus Class 3A state championship participants Union Parish and Sterlington in the final two weeks of the regular season.
