If you’ve heard of Kennedale football then you’ve heard the name Richard Barrett. He serves as athletic director and head coach of the Wildcat football team. We had the chance to have a little Q & A with the 200 game-winning head coach. Here’s what he had to say about this year’s Wildcats:
Q: What are your goals as a football team for this season?
Barrett: “Our goals for the season are to improve each week.”
Q: What do you expect to be the most challenging game?
Barrett: “I think all the games will be challenging, but the district games are going to be the most crucial.”
Q: What are the strengths of this year’s football team?
Barrett: “The strengths of the team are the experience we have amongst the seniors.”
Q: What is your philosophy for winning football games?
Barrett: “Play as hard as you can for 48 minutes. The most important play is the next one!”
Q: What can Wildcat fans look forward to this season?
Barrett: “Kids playing with a sense of pride, a lot of determination, and a passion for winning.”
The Wildcats next game is this Friday vs. Texas High in Lindale, and their first district game is October 12th vs. Springtown.
So, come support The Wildcats as they prepare for district. Go Wildcats!
