ABILENE, TX – The Central Bobcats will be heading to Abilene tonight to take on Abilene Cooper in their first scrimmage of the 2021-2022 season.
The Bobcats have completed summer workouts and now looks to start the season on a positive note with new head coach Kevin Crane. Crane became head coach after longtime head coach Brent Davis announced that he accepted a job in the Corpus Cristi area.
Crane and the Bobcats lost a number of players but are returning 13 starters including standout wide receiver Tyler Hill and defensive stud Ty Casey.
Tyler Hill is expected to move from the wide-out position into the quarterback position. Hill was a key component of the offense last year as Crane used him for a number of trick plays including the double pass. But the job is not a lock for Hill.
"I think there's always competition," said Central head coach Kevin Crane. "Both players are capable of doing it. You're going to see both of those guys get a lot of reps in this fall camp."
This will be one of the most intriguing parts of the scrimmage.
Last year Central went 4-2 in district and made the playoffs. This scrimmage will show where the Bobcats are at entering the 2021-2022 season.
So the questions that need to be answered during tonights scrimmage are: "Who will be the starting QB?," "Is Central ready to take the next step and win a district title?," and "Will they have enough fire power to compete in the Little Southwest Conference?"
