The Opp Bobcats made the playoff in 2008. They want to take the next step in 2009. Opp opens the season on August 28th at rival school Elba.
The Cats were region title contenders last year, finishing at 5-2 in Class 4A, Region-2. This season, Opp has designs on a region title.
Head Coach Jack Whigham says his offensive skills guys will lead the way this year.
"They're not D-1 prospects by any means,” Whigham said. “But, our leading three rushers are returning. They had 2,300 yards between the three of them. We've got an experienced quarterback although he was hurt some last year, Gavin Free. And, we've got some receivers that have played a lot."
