To no one’s surprise, the Woodland Wildcats this week are getting a big dose of football fundamentals and work on the plays their coaches believe will help the most against their Friday night opponent.

Head coach Vince DiLorenzo said this week’s opponent, North Paulding, is another strong member of Region 5-AAAAA and, like all the other region members, will be a challenge when it visits Woodland.

The Wolfpack, coached by Scott Jones, are fresh off administering a sound whipping to Hiram, 43-27, their third victory in a row after starting the season with a 38-17 loss to perennial power East Paulding. Their other victories came against New Manchester, 41-20, and Lithia Springs, 27-13.

North Paulding (3-1 overall, 3-1 in its region) is scoring an average of 32 points per game while giving up 24 points.

DiLorenzo said the visitors look as good as their record, too.

“We’ve seen North Paulding on film several times and each time we’ve watched, we’ve been impressed with their play in all three phases of the game. We’ve developed a respect for them that happened before this week.”
