CC Calallen Looks to Rebound in 2015

The Corpus Christi Calallen Wildcats had a little bit of a down year in 2014. They finished the season with a 7-5 record, coming in 4th in the district with a 5-3 district record and making it to the Area round of the playoffs. That sounds pretty good but this is the Calallen Wildcats. They have 31 consecutive winning seasons (7th all-time) and have had 10+ win seasons 25 of last 29 years. The Wildcats are 124-11 in district play since 1994 and have had 25 consecutive bi-district wins in the playoffs.

Head Coach Phil Danaher is one of the state's all-time winningest coaches. His coaching record (407-103-4) puts Danaher in 2nd place - just behind G.A. Moore with 425 coaching wins. (All-Time Coaching Wins)

Eight (8) all-district players return for 2015. Only two (2) of those are defensive players where the Wildcats are usually strongest.

Returning All-District Players

Offensive Newcomer of the Year

SOPH Gaige Lamb

1st Team

SOPH WR John Gaddis

JR TE Kale Emshoff

JR OL Matt Cade

2nd Team

JR WR Phil Hobbs

JR WR Ryder Duff

JR DL Moneeb Ullah

JR DB Kalani Ibarra

Expect another winning season at Calallen. It will not be easy to win the district though as the top teams look to include Victoria West and Corpus Christi Flour Bluff.  There should be a pretty big drop off after those teams.
