The Wildcats are coached by Head Coach Tony Keith and Assistant Coaches, Roger Scott and Winston Wilks.  They are undefeated in their league boosting a 15-0 record. They are League Champions and County Champions.  Seven members of the team went to the State All-Star Championship two years ago.

From the mound; Logan Wilks, Joshua Scott and Gavin Chambers shouldered the load as pitchers.  Defensively, the Wildcats are also strong. They outscored their competition 186-28.  They have 7 out of 12 batters that batted over .500

“This is a great group of kids and one of the strongest teams that I have ever coached,” said Head Coach Tony Keith.

Since the Wildcats were League Champions they were able to choose additional players for their team from the league that consists of Sylvania, Ider, Valley Head and Henagar. They will play in the District 8 All-Star, June 17, 2016 at Hokes Bluff.
