The season opener for any high school football team is often filled with high energy, excitement, and nerves. The Xenith Prep Kickoff Classic takes those feelings to another level, as it features the Mid-West’s marquee high school football matchups. The Cass Tech football program is no stranger to these feelings, but Coach Wilcher leads a young team after graduating 30 seniors last year.
With powerhouse Wendell Phillips Academy out of Chicago on the other side of the ball, the Technicians had their work cut out, and unfortunately suffer an early season loss. Coach Wilcher ensures the team views the tough loss as a lesson learned the hard way, “The most important thing is you guys cannot stop fighting, you guys cannot stop learning.” Overcoming adversity and facing challenges head on are necessary evils on the path to becoming a football force to be reckoned with. The question is how the Cass Tech football team will respond to this adversity. Rise, Technicians, rise.
