Los Gatos Wildcat Football Inter-Squad Scrimmage

The Cats ran several scrimmages Saturday including:
1. First offense vs. Best possible defense.
2. Reserve scrimmage where most of the starters sat out.
3. First defense vs. Best possible offense.
4. Black team vs. white team where the team was split up as evenly as possible.

This led to some interesting play including mismatches, as well as starters going against other starters, and a chance to see which players were the best reserves on the team.

With so many players playing in so many different situations, the stats can be very misleading, but the film tells the real tale of who played well and who did not.

The first offense looked very good vs. the defense that was out there.
The first defense looked outstanding vs. the offense it played against.
The reserve scrimmage was probably the most interesting as several players stood out and deserve a chance to get more looks.
The black vs. white was interesting only in its mismatches as the coaches realized some players, especially our seniors are way ahead of many of our younger players.  
Players that looked good were QB Nick Bawden who played with the first offense and against the first defense going 13-20 for 198 and two touchdowns.
Tyler Perkins looked very good on defense as did fellow linebackers Max Herman, Kevin Tjon, Brendan Williams, Teva Brender, Jack Tittle and Will Le.
Running backs Herman, Le and Etterman looked very good and Johnny Breidenthall and Joey Wood showed flashes of potential. Wood had a long run and a big catch, while Breidenthall continually gained extra yards after contact and had the only rushing touchdown.
Kyle Kevorkian had big catches and Cameron Perry led the team in the number of receptions. Teva Brender looked good at tight end, while James Sena had an excellent day receiving the ball and Herman and Le looked good catching the football.  The Cats had twelve different receivers catch the ball. 
QB’s Greg Schwager and Trent Bowling also threw the ball quite well.  
On the line, Nico Aimonetti, Ricky Turnwall, Alex Randolph, Brendan Williams and Kevin Tjon all had good plays.  
Brent McCoy was outstanding at strong safety and other secondary standouts included Kyle Kevorkian, Ty Doughty, Cameron Ackerman and Yenlin Lee.  
On the dark side the Cats had three fumbles and one interception, four dropped passes on the day and a couple of QB sacks.  
Next Friday the team will get a chance to see what they can do together when they scrimmage San Mateo at 7:00 at newly remodeled Helm stadium.  
This will be the last tune up before a brutal pre-league schedule vs. Mitty, Menlo-Atherton and Oak Grove. 
On the whole the Camp was a major success with great food, great community and parent support and a great week of football. As school starts on Monday the Cats are ready for the football season to begin.
