This year has been a promising one for the Weimar Wildcat football program. Their record now stands at (9-1) (3-1) after their 49-18 win over district opponent the Yorktown Wildcats last Friday, and Weimar is looking ahead to an anticipated playoff run.
Sophomore quarterback No. 16 Joey Ramirez had a big night for the Wildcats with 126 yards passing and three touchdown strikes. He also added a rushing touchdown of his own, giving the Wildcats a comfortable lead. Senior running back No.. 6 Ravon’Dre Wicks and Sophomore running back No. 7 Jose Ramirez created trouble for the Yorktown defense as well.
Wicks would rush for 104 yards with a touchdown, Jose Ramirez would haul in two receiving touchdowns for a total of 64 yards on the night.
Senior wide receiver No. 8 Dylerick Ellison secured three catches for 36 yards a touchdown. Wildcat Jose Ramirez made his presence known on both sides of the ball. Accounting for 9 tackles, one tackle for loss and a fumble recovery touchdown, he simply could not be stopped. Senior line backer No. 17 Vincete Cabera brought his A-game as well, making 12 tackles on the night.
Junior line backer No. 12 Reed Purdy had a big night, too, with 9 tackles, two sacks and a caused fumble that led to a Nunu Wilson fumble recovery touchdown.
The Wildcats will be back in action Nov. 22 at 7:30 for a playoff match-up against the (7-2) (4-0) Mason Punchers.
The real season season starts now.
