Wyatt Chaparrels 

(2-3, 0-2)

Aledo Bearcats (4-1, 2-0)

Last season: 14-2 overall, 7-0 in District 5-4A ,

Class 4A, DII state champs

Last week: Beat South Hills 49-0

Players to watch: LB Gunner Johnson, WR Willie Gibson, FS Shea Wood, SS Clayton Lowe, LB Jordan Mittie, QB Pate Davis, RB Caleb Frysinger, RB  Jess Anders.

Game notes: Wyatt QB Ladell Marshall is one of the biggest, and fastest signal callers in District 7-4A, and would likely be one of the most imposing offensive forces if he had a better supporting cast. Responsible for two-thirds of the offense, there is just not enough of Marshall to go around,making him an attractive target every time the Chaps snap the ball. Still, with 4.4 speed and weighing in at nearly 200 pounds, merely keeping an eye on him is not enough.

The dimensions of the Aledo offense grow with each week. The Bearcats first score against South Hills featured a Pate Davis to John Whatley 15-yard pass, with the tight end splitting out wide and easily beating his single coverage. Between receivers Whatley, Willie Gibson and Taco Anderson, the productive elements of the Aledo offense keep growing, as they hope to display on Homecoming Night vs. the Chaps.
