After a 4-6 2018 season, the Wildcats look to bounce back in 2019 and get back into the playoff conversation. Their 2019 campaign begins August 30th against Baytown Sterling.
Stay tuned for our VYPE Football Preview coming in early August.
You may not know the name Chase Hildreth yet, but you will.
The Netflix show "Last Chance U" launches its fourth season in mid-July and at the center of the controversial show is the former Clear Creek quarterback Hildreth.
Hildreth lit up scoreboards with his arm for the Wildcats throwing for over 5,800 yards and 75 touchdowns during his prep career.
The 6-foot-3 lefty has had a football journey. After high school, he played at Blinn CC then transferred to Scottsdale CC.
He got his shot this year to be the QB1 at Independence CC, the subject of Last Chance U and the boisterous coach Jason Brown. The Patriots went 2-8 on the season and Hildreth played in six games, throwing for over 1,200 yards and seven touchdowns.
"My time at Indy had its ups and downs, but overall I felt like it was a great learning experience," he said. "The junior college life isn't for everybody. You have to really love the game in order to make it out."
He's now at Texas State, along with new coach Jake Spavital – considered an offensive genius.
While at Last Chance U, the cameras were all over the place. Hopefully, at Texas State the cameras will follow for good reason.
"The cameras were something I wasn't really used too," he said. "It's different playing in a football game with a whole camera crew following you around watching your every move. It was overwhelming at first, but as time went on, I got used to it."
The new season dubbed "Last Chance U: Indy Part 2" will be released July 19th on Netflix.
