Everything You Need to Know About the Central Bobcat Scrimmage


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.

During COVER1's coverage of the Central summer workouts another name was put in the hat for starting QB. Crane says that Hill's competition is Ben Imler.

"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?"
