Over the past three weeks, Real Shreveport Sports has traveled to several schools, and made cool (at least we think so) hype videos. Videos previewing and hyping the teams, schools, players, and school spirits’.
Well, the high school football hype train continues and the Southwood Cowboys look ready! The 2018 season is something Coach Anthony McClain has looked forward to for awhile, and it’s because of his twenty seniors ready to roll.
Seniors like starting quarterback, Cory Wallace. A player several coaches in the area love to talk about, meaning, he’s special.
“He could start at any school in the district,” says an unnamed District 1-5A head coach.
Southwood’s head coach, Anthony McClain told Real Shreveport Sports Wallace has “the strongest arm in the area.” We saw it, kid can sling it.
Mix his cannon with a cast of playmaking senior (and a couple of junior) receivers and running backs, and it’s on.
They grew up together. Several players on Southwood’s team came from Ridgewood Middle School. A middle school team that receiver Wesley Calloway says, “Won all the championships. Only lost 1 game.”
Now they’re seniors.
Southwood fared well against opponents over the summer in 7-on-7 tournaments.
We’ll me back to Southwood very soon. Look forward to it.
Southwood opens the season Friday night against Pineville at Lee Hedges Stadium at 7pm.
