AMARILLO — Capping in among Press Pass Sports’ “Texas Panhandle’s best bets for Jerry’s World,” the Childress Bobcats and Wellington Skyrockets are expected to go deep into the playoffs this fall, possibly even making it AT&T Stadium in Arlington.
With the Bobcats returning 15 starters off a state-quarterfinal team last season, Press Pass Sports calls this year’s Bobcat lineup “the best squad head coach Jason Sims has put on the field during his seven seasons.”
Boasting dual-threat star quarterback Collin Bishop, receiver Lamont Nickleberry and sophomore sensation Dareon Mathis at running back, the No. 6-ranked Bobcats are sure to turn heads this season.
The Skyrockets are also primed for a deep run in the playoffs following last year’s heartbreaking season end in which Wellington came a touchdown away from competing for a Class 2A Division II state championship. Returning 12 starters, running back Marc Ramirez and quarterback Creighton Killian are leading players to watch.
Both the Bobcats and the Skyrockets kick off official play tonight at 7 p.m. The Bobcats will challenge the Panhandle Panthers at Panther Stadium while the Skyrockets will take on the Duncan Demons at Halliburton Stadium.
