After consecutive tough losses to Monroe-Woodbury and Minisink Valley, Warwick coach James Sciarra decided to insert the ‘Wildcat” into the offense.
Sciarra had tinkered with the idea before, thinking it would be a good idea to get WR Brad Garcia the ball more. However, after M-W and M-V, a change had to be made. Warwick, who will play Washingtonville next week with a berth in the Class AA playoffs on the line, are 2-0 since the Wildcats went with “The Wildcat”.
The formation is used to capitalize on mismatches created by the shifting of skill players. The quarterback is replaced in the backfield by a running back who takes a direct snap from the center. Warwick’s new QB, sophomore Brendan Bauer, Garcia and Warwick’s OL have made the wildcat go.
Check back for more on Warwick and the wildcat next week.
