WELLINGTON WILL BE STATE-TITLE CONTENDERS AGAIN IN 2018, BUT WILL THEY WIN IT?

Before we get started, I know it’s one game at a time, and never overlook an opponent, and the rest of the custom sayings a coach will use for his team that has a high expectation coming into the season. But, in this case, we all know Wellington is going to be playing in the Regional Final, probably against Albany at Plains Capital Park, which happens to be the last time the Skyrockets won a title back in 2013. What is in their way for a title run besides Mart at AT&T Stadium? Not too much, in my opinion.

Moving over to Region II will help with travel, and also will help with competition as teams like Quanah and Munday join the party along with Memphis, Shamrock and Wheeler in 2-5A DII’s District. The Skyrockets are loaded this fall..again.. But, with Jojo McKnight following behind Trevor Roberson, who had 20 offers before he committed to Texas Tech, there should be a lot of running room for JoJo and anyone else who takes the snap from behind the line. Defensively, the Skyrockets will be better than a group that was great last year! With players like John Holcomb and Seven Wilbur back, their defense will be stingy! Wellington has a great schedule in non-district including a visit from Abernathy early that will probably come down to the wire and proves as a good test for Wellington’s defense with players like Bryson Daily and Kole Carlisle attacking their back-end and linebackers.

Don’t be surprised if Wellington is at Jerry’s World in early December for a shot at another title. I’ll be there too to see.
