Winning for the North Little Rock Charging Wildcats is quickly becoming one of the three constants in life. The Wildcats racked up another conference championship in route to a state championship game appearance in 2016. The Wildcats have the potential to repeat the conference championship and make another deep playoff run this season.
North Little Rock has plenty of weapons on the offensive side of the ball that will be dangerous for the opposing defense to contain. Wide receiver Deontae Montgomery is a player that North Little Rock fans will want to keep an eye on this season. Montgomery racked up over 400 yards receiving and scored three touchdowns last season. Charging Wildcats’ fans can look for the offense to stay dynamic and explosive. North Little Rock from an offensive perspective should be solid going into 2017.
The Charging Wildcats’ defense has four starters returning for the 2017 season. Middle linebacker Trevon Hadley had an excellent season in 2016 and is looking to build off of it. Hadley accumulated over 100 tackles last season and had an excellent season in route to all-state honors. North Little Rock might take a game or two to gel from a defensive perspective, but once they do this will be a dangerous team to contend with.
If the Charging Wildcats can click on both sides of the ball this will be a team that racks up the wins early. Look for North Little Rock to be one of the favorites for the 7-A Central and make a deep playoff run this season. The Charging Wildcats simply have too many weapons on both sides of the ball to miss the playoffs.
