"This was an intense two weeks for us. We did a lot of good things and feel like we got some good work in," said Wildcat Head Coach Curtis Higgins.
Trigg County won the consolation bracket of the Male Twilight 7-on-7 Passing Tournament Friday in Louisville.
After losing to Breathitt County 26-0 in the first round, the Wildcats rebounded to beat two teams from Seneca and Manual’s #1 squad.
On Saturday, the Wildcats beat Moore, Iroquois, and New Albany, Indiana before losing to Paducah Tilghman.
Higgins said the team prefaced the Louisville tourney with a trip to Lexington. While there Joker Phillips, recruiting coordinator for Kentucky, gave them a tour of the UK facilities.
Trigg County also played a pair of passing league games against two Lexington-area high schools, beating Henry Clay and losing to Paul Dunbar.
The Wildcats finished 4-2 at the Murray State 7-on-7 camp June 5, beating three Tennessee schools before losing to Marshall County in the tournament.
Higgins said Trigg County was without the services of about nine players who were at the Class A State Track Meet in Lexington that day.
About 15 linemen also got some work in at the camp.
"It was a good day’s work for them," Higgins said.
Trigg County also joined with Hopkinsville, Madisonville, Hopkins Central, and Clarksville Northwest to play in several passing league games at various high schools.
The games gave Higgins a chance to evaluate the quarterback position, one of four he must find a new starter for in 2004.
Juniors Dylan Sonnek and Tommy Woodall have the inside track for the starting job, Higgins said. Sonnek missed most of last season with a concussion, while Woodall played sparingly at receiver.
"We’ve got a long way to go. We dropped a lot of passes and threw too many interceptions, but the potential is there for us to be good," Higgins said.
Defensively, Higgins said Jake Wallace and Rick Woods had good games in Louisville.
The Wildcats were 9-3 last year and are picked by many to win the Class 2A, Region I, District 1 title this year.
