WACO, Texas (KWTX) The Reicher Catholic High School Cougars were 4-6 last year during the regular season, but actually made the playoffs before being eliminated by the Woodlands Christian Academy in the first round.
It's a new era at Reicher, with a new quarterback in Jake Boozer, as
Ben Brittain left for the Air Force Academy, and a new head coach in former Bosqueville offensive coordinator, Tyler Holcomb.
Holcomb is sure to bring some of the schemes over from that high octane offense in Bosqueville where the Bulldogs averaged nearly 42 points a game last year.
For Holcomb this is actually a homecoming of sorts as he was an assistant on the Reicher team that won state in 2009. Holcomb believes in order to recapture that magic, it’s about doing the little things.
“That’s really what we are trying to do right now is laying a foundation,” said Holcomb. “We're not looking too far ahead. We got to take it one day at a time, one practice at a time. Get better each period. And then hopefully by the time we hit district, we'll start to see the fruit of those labors and have some success.”
The cougars will see if they have started to lay the proper foundation when they take on Kerens on the 31st.
