This is shaping up to be a potentially big year for the Cougars. They have a great senior leader in quarterback Braiden Holloway (6-0, 200, Sr.), who had 1,400 passing yards and 15 touchdowns last season. Head coach Casey Goad says Holloway has “everything you want and need in that position.” Look for Holloway to have a big season, along with wide receivers Blake Bledsoe (6-0, 190, Sr.) and Nate Lockert (6-2, 175, Jr.) as his most common targets. Last year Bledsoe had 700 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns, while Lockert covered 300 yards and had four touchdowns. In the run game, Justus Jones (5-6, 160, Sr.) is one to watch for as he adds to his 650 all-purpose yards and five touchdowns. Wide receiver Trey Reese (5-9, 170, Jr.) and running back Jake Kennedy (5-10, 180, Jr.) also offer great passing and rushing options to this offense.


The same six returning starters you see on offense will play this side of the ball as well. At linebacker, Holloway was the leading tackler last season with 75 tackles. Justus Jones and Jake Kennedy return as outside linebackers, who together had a combined total of 100 tackles. Safeties Blake Bledsoe and Nate Lockert help shore up the secondary along with Trey Reese at cornerback. “We have had a great offseason and summer,” Goad said. “The kids have bought in and are competing at a high level. Traditionally, Woodland is physical, disciplined and very competitive. These kids will put us back on the map in Class A football. They are excited and hungry to do great things.”
