Herald-Banner football preview: Wolfe City will move the football
David Claybourn Herald-Banner Sports Editor Aug 16, 2017

WOLFE CITY — All-state running back Devonta Brown is one of eight good reasons why the Wolfe City Wolves shouldn’t have a problem with moving the football this season.

Brown, who rushed for 1,976 yards in 2016, is one of eight returning starters on offense from a 6-5 playoff team.

Brown made the honorable mention list of the Associated Press Sports Editor’s Class 2A all-state team last season.

Also back to lead the offense are quarterback Jed Cagle, running backs Cody Greenway and Dylan Wilson, and linemen Kellan Anderson and Bowie Tanner.

The Wolves also return nine starters on defense, led by lineman Eric Fisk, Greenway at linebacker and Wilson at defensive back.

Fisk recorded 16 tackles for losses last season.

Other players to watch for the Wolves include defensive back-wide receiver Tim Wright, running back-linebacker Travis Williams, wide receiver-defensive back Micah Alexander, defensive back Logan Green, lineman Adam Palstring and linebacker Jacob Pack.

Returning head coach Darren Anderson said the Wolves have been looking good in preseason practice.

“We’re very excited about the work that they’ve done,” he said.

The Wolves are getting strong leadership from their 12 seniors, he said.

“We’ve got a really good senior class.”

Wolfe City scrimmages first at 9 a.m. Saturday at Celeste and then on Aug. 24 at Trenton.


The Wolves have gotten a break on the temperatures for their workouts.

“In my 22 years of coaching this is probably the mildest summer I’ve ever been through,” said Anderson. “You can’t complain about 90 degrees weather in August. Ninety-two is a lot better than 102.”

NOTES: “Dave Campbell’s Texas Football” magazine picked District 9-2A, Division I this way: 1. Rivercrest, 2. Wolfe City, 3. Linden-Kildare, 4. Boles, 5. Honey Grove, 6. James Bowie.

Wolfe City tied with James Bowie for second place last year. Anderson said the district should be a “little better than last year.”

The Wolves open the season on Sept. 1 at Dallas First Baptist, which beat Wolfe City 34-26 last year.

“They’ve got a lot of good skill kids,” Anderson said. “They throw the ball around really well. Our biggest thing is we’ve got to focus on us. Not worry about other people."

2017 Herald-Banner football preview: Boles to run with Josiah Wilson

David Claybourn Herald-Banner Sports Editor

2017 BOLES HORNETS — 1 Josh Henderson, 2 Jason Henderson, 3 Josiah Wilson, 5 Michael McBrayer, 6 Kyle Green, 7 Preston Adams, 8 Koen Goggins, 13 Santiago Sanjines, 22 Evan Bain, 23 Calan Still, 34 Brian Hinojos, 50 Preston Campbell, 51 Kaleb Zimmer, 54 Keaton Kanaman, 55 Chad Wetteland, 60 Corey Tacker, 70 Jacob Howell, 75 Jonathan Johnson, 78 Matt Finn.


QUINLAN — All-state running back Josiah Wilson returns to lead the Boles Hornets as they try to make it back into the football playoffs this season.

Wilson earned all-state honors after rushing for a team-high 1,735 yards and 19 touchdowns on 240 carries in 2016, including a long gain of 90 yards.

Wilson also led the 4-7 Hornets last season in tackles from his linebacker position.

“I believe we should have a good season if we can get to district healthy,” said Boles coach Kim Kanaman. “We play a real tough preseason schedule. Our strength will be our offensive line and running backs.”

Kyle Green, who ran for 844 yards and nine touchdowns on 128 carries, also returns to the Hornets’ backfield along with quarterback Jason Henderson, who passed for 445 yards and two touchdowns last season and ran for 101 yards and four TDs.

“He runs the offense well,” Kanaman said of Henderson. “He ranks first in his class. Jason’s a real smart quarterback.”

Three of the Hornets’ top blockers are also back including three-time first-team all-district selection Keaton Kanaman and first-time all-district pick Kaleb Zimmer on the offensive line and Evan Bain at tight end.

Zimmer at noseguard, Kanaman at defensive end, plus Bain and Wilson will provide plenty of leadership to the Hornet defense.

Boles made it into the playoffs with a fourth-place finish in District 9-2A last season behind Rivercrest (10-1), James Bowie (4-7) and Wolfe City (6-5).

“District will be very tough with Rivercrest and Wolfe City looking good,” said Kanaman.


Currently the Hornets are carrying 19 players on the varsity roster.

“Our firsts are pretty good,” said the Boles coach. “We’re just going to be thin, like every 2A high school is.”

NOTES: Arlington Pantego outscored Boles 2-0 in touchdowns in the first preseason scrimmage. “Dave Campbell’s Texas Football” magazine sees District 9-2A, Division I this way: 1. Rivercrest, 2. Wolfe City, 3. Linden-Kildare, 4. Boles, 5. Honey Grove, 6. James Bowie.
