The Eddie G. Robinson Classic has some of the most tradition rich schools taking part in the classic and this matchup is no different. The Bastrop Rams will take on the Wossman Wildcats in what should be action packed matchup. Bastrop is coming off a 10-3 season and a trip to the quarterfinals last season and are looking to keep the momentum going. The Wossman Wildcats are heading into the 2016 season coming off of a 7-5 season are looking to build on that success.
The Bastrop Rams come into the classic with a change at the head coaching position. Marcus Yanez will lead the Rams onto the field against the Wildcats. Brad Bradshaw has taken a job in the Bastrop administration, which has led to Marcus Yanez taking over Rams. The Rams are going to be a young team coming into the 2016 season, but overlooking them would be a big mistake. The Rams have some young players to keep an eye that could explode on to the scene over the next year or two. Fans should keep an eye on Calvert Johnson at the wide receiver position and the Rams’ fans should be excited by his potential.
The Wildcats of Wossman come into the 2016 season after finishing the 2015 season with a solid 7-5 record. Wossman is led by Coach Dean Smith and are determined to build on the success of the 2015 season. Kicking of the season against the Rams of Bastrop will be a good test for both teams. A player to keep an eye on for the Wildcats is Kobi Young. Young is a playmaker all over the field and should add an interesting weapon for the Wildcats to use both on the offensive and defensive side of the ball. Fans should expect this game to be close late and be a fun matchup to watch.
