October 24, 2007
The first district win in coach Steve Hopkins’ four year run, courtesy of a 35-16 win against Bishop Ward on Friday night, has the Bobcats thinking playoffs—even with a Thursday night contest at Piper still to play. “Obviously our goal is to get better each week with the eye toward the state playoffs, so reaching this point is exciting,” Hopkins said. “Winning district is a big step.” The team has been focused on that step since winter. The Bobcats have had “state” workouts every Friday at 6:30 a.m. beginning in January and lasting through summer. The team did 14 reps of each exercise in the offseason because the state champion will end up playing 14 games. The reps are reduced with each game played, so on Thursday the Bobcats will do six reps because there are six games left for the teams that reach the state championship game.
