Summary: Coach Jason White and the Wildcats have lost to the Brookville Bees in the playoffs the past two seasons. White wouldn't mind bypassing them this year because he knows he has another playoff-caliber team in Lexington. Dynamic QB Porter Abell is now with the Richmond Spiders but one of his offensive weapons from last season takes over that position. Trey Merchant is moving from his running back position to QB and will be controlling the offense. The offensive line is very young but it is anchored by junior giant Austin Clark who is receiving some major attention from top notch Division One schools. White says the Wildcats will throw more often this season "to keep teams honest" against the run. The Wildcats were co-champs with Northside in the Blue Ridge last season and the Vikings could be their main competition once again.
