After an early-season stumble, Sulphur Springs has shifted into high gear just in time for the District 14-4A schedule. The Wildcats rolled over Mount Pleasant 63-28 at Gerald Prim Stadium in Sulphur Springs on Oct. 11 in the district opener for both teams.

“Offensively, they had all they could handle with (running back) Willy (Ivery),” Sulphur Springs coach Greg Owens said. “Willy and (quarterback) Larry (Pryor) did a fantastic job. I thought we controlled the front with the O-line, so they did a super job with all that,” Owens said.
