Free spirits at Wilson create historic team

Wildcats enjoying the spotlight while winning

ROCHESTER - Nobody has more fun in Section V than the Wilson Wildcats.

"We got a lot of goofy kids, you know its just our personality, thats just how they are," laughed Desjon Dash.

"Honestly I would say we're a unique group and we feel as though after winning is done then we can have fun," added Desi Floyd Jr.

The Wildcats don't let their personalities and antics in front of the camera get in the way of the team. In fact, the players don't even know their stats until the end of the season, instead the guys play for something else. 

Stickers.

"We only do the stickers for team accomplishments, no individual stickers. We try and keep everything team oriented. The reality is we want the kids to worry about winning, not,  'oh we lost but I got 100 yards rushing," said Head Coach Greg Mortier.

"Someone can go out and have eight touchdowns and 500 yards and as long as we win we're all okay,'' smiled Floyd Jr.

"We just go out and play to win," added Dash.

While it's clear the Wildcats know how to have fun... they also know when it's time to get serious.

"This week right here its no joking, its straight, we might joke in the locker room for a little bit but when you come out and step on this field its game time," said Dash.

"Confidence is high, we're not afraid to play anyone no matter the size. They keep doubting us and we keep proving them wrong," added Rickey Gamble Jr.

Wilson plays West Seneca West out of Section VI Friday night at SUNY Brockport in the state quarterfinals.
