Four veteran seniors will lead Wildcats on gridiron this year

By Greg Perkins

The Joseph City Wildcats will return to the gridiron on Friday, Aug. 25, when they host Valley Union.

Head Coach Eldon Larsen currently has just four seniors on his roster, but each brings experience from last year’s team, which went 7-3 before losing in the second round of the 1A state playoffs to Superior.

Jesse Hulsey, Rhett Beard, Matt Fields and Rance Haddox will lead a young Wildcat unit this year. Currently the four seniors on the roster will be joined by juniors Cameron Baldwin, O’Brien Irwin, Damon Sandoval, Carlos Sanchez and Eligh Ashcroft; sophomores Ethan Hansen, Seth Hutchens, Latrell Kinlicheenie and Porter Thomas; and freshmen Colter Westover, Daniel Beatty, James Eischen, Reese Ashcroft and Jay Edwards.
