Cassville, MO -- The Wildcats will look to leadership rather than experience to guide them through the 2013 football season. They return junior starting quarterback Gabe Kirk, who started nine of 11 games last season. The Wildcats also bring back reigning Big Eight Defensive Player of the Year Hayden Prater. As a junior in 2012, Prater was huge for Cassville at linebacker and running back.
However, even with all the leadership coming back, they might be strongest on the offensive line. Look some big holes to open up for the running game and plenty of time for Gabe Kirk to let it fly.
