"Our kids are really excited to play Escalon," said Wildcat head coach Bryan Craig. "They feel like they've got a good chance and I feel the same way. We're playing good football right now and this is the right time, we're healthy, and if it's gonna happen, this might be the time."

"We've been more serious and working hard at practice this week," said senior co-captain Austin Davis. "They're a very good team, but I feel we're gonna do real well.I expect it to be hard-hitting for sure. This is a big game going against the defending champs."
