After a rough start in the season-opening loss to Kimball High School, 35-21, last week, the Woodrow Wilson football team looks to grab their first win of the 2012 season when they play host to Fort Worth Eastern Hills on Friday, September 6.

Sloppy play is what mostly doomed Woodrow Wilson last week. The team had a total of four turnovers, two of which were immediately converted into touchdowns. Quarterback Sam Keeter did a good job of spreading the field and making plays - he threw for 166 yards and two touchdowns - but he'll need to be more efficient and accurate with his passing. Keeter completed less than 50-percent of his throws and also tossed two interceptions.

The Wildcats are also still seearching for a running back to step up and fill the shoes of departed running back Shaquille Dottin. The leading rusher for Woodrow last week was Tracey James with 32 yards on 11 carries. As a team, the Wildcats gained only 83 yards on 27 attempts.

The Woodrow defense will need to keep an eye on FW Eastern Hills' ground game, which compiled 109 yards on 39 attempts in the team's loss to Bishop Dunne last week. Eastern Hills' quarterback, Decorien Myers, completed only five of his 12 passing attempts for 34 yards. He did throw for one touchdown but offset that by also throwing four interceptions.

Woodrow Wilson and Fort Worth Eastern Hills play on Thursday, September 6 with kick off at 7:00 p.m.
