Denton Guyer plowed into the season last year with amazing victories over Hebron, Denton Ryan, and more in the preseason. After showcasing their talents through preseason play, the Wildcats posted a 5-1 district record to finish in the second place spot in their district- just behind Allen. Through playoffs, the Wildcats ended the seasons of Flower Mound, Dallas Jesuit, Trophy Club Byron Nelson, Prosper, and Tomball before appearing in the State Title game where they fell 40-21 to a strong Austin Westlake team.
The team graduated some of their best players last year, so there are still questions that arise as to who is filling what roles. But the Wildcats are lead by Oklahoma commit and four star quarterback Jackson Arnold who is poised for a big season. Additionally, with Sutton Lee proving to be a key returner and leader to what will be a young squad, the team is going to need a lot of strong guidance and determination to accomplish their goals this season.
Rebuilding. It's not going to be an easy season, but if anyone can get it done, it's the Wildcats. Guyer, more than anything else, has a program and coaching staff that puts the pressure on their athletes at all times to keep them sharp and game day ready. Although they might drop a couple of games early in the preseason, fans can expect Guyer to enter district play ready to roll!
After a less-than-ideal season last year, the Guyer Wildcats have truly made a name for themselves this season. The Wildcats have forged a path that proved all naysayers wrong and now head into the area round against Arlington Martin. VYPE DFW takes a look at the road to playoffs as well as what fans can expect from this Denton Guyer squad!
This season, the Wildcats took to the court with a fire in their hearts and the will to be the best that they have ever been. Their drive to succeed has radiated throughout every game they have played beginning with their season opening 78-77 overtime win against Byron Nelson to set the tone for the rest of their season. If there were any naysayers after that, you wouldn't have been able to tell by the way Guyer continued to give it their all on the court with wins over Cedar Hill, Lewisville, Plano West, Temple, and more during preseason play.
Denton Guyer finished second in their district- just behind the McKinney Lions- with a 10-2 district record. The Wildcats posted strong wins against the likes of Dallas Jesuit, Denton Braswell, Allen, McKinney, Little Elm, Prosper, and more in order to set up their strong playoff entrance.
To start playoffs with a bang, the Wildcats posted a 73-60 victory over the Lewisville Farmers. With the big victory, Denton Guyer is headed into the area round where they will face-off against a strong Arlington Martin squad. Arlington Martin is 25-7 overall this season and will prove to be a strong team.
Guyer fans can expect nothing less than the true heart of the Wildcats on the court. That is, fans can expect the Wildcats to play with the same intensity that has been seen all season. Denton Guyer should have no problems taking any challenge that Arlington Martin throws their way and doing their best to overcome!
