Head Coach Greg Fisher discusses the Wildcats’ wildfire offense and future play.
1.)What did you tell your team coming into this first game?
” I told them to come out and play with confidence, to execute, establish tempo, and get after the other team right off the bat. That was our goal and made me the proudest tonight.”
2.)How do you prepare your team to run a fast paced offense?
” We have been running this offense for about 5 years and each year we just get more in sync. It’s almost an expectation now with our kids that when we show up we go fast. We do not back off at all.”
3.)What inspired you to run this type of offense?
” It started with the University of Oregon and it spread around. Southern Oregon has had one of the most prolific offenses in the nation the last two years and we are pretty good friends with the staff down there. They have shared a lot with us and we have really adapted that ‘score’ mentality.”
4.)What adjustments need to be made for your following game against McNary?
” We need to be sharper. We had some personnel and special teams things tonight that need to get cleaned up. We tell kids that we want perfect effort and we are also going to aspire for flawless execution along the way.”
5.)Who is the biggest leader on your team?
“We have a lot, which is the best thing. We have a senior group of about 12 kids that are really tight. They were the nucleus of our team last year. Obviously we have Austin Brisbee at quarterback, as well as Teagan Lind, and Ian Myers who are all returning all-league players. We have a whole slew of other ones too with Matt Lyon, Brian Stocks, Henry Sundin, Trevor Bovero, and Noah Spencer. They have all played together for a long time and are just a strong group.”
6.)Who are you looking forward to competing against most in league this season?
“Well, they are all tough but I’m looking forward to our Sunset game. We owe those guys and it will be a good one.”
