For the Moundridge Wildcats, Saturday was a chance for their football team to go up against somebody else and evaluate their progress.

The Wildcats took part in a one-day camp hosted by McPherson College at McPherson Stadium.

For Moundridge coach Jeremiah Meeks, who will be starting his fourth year, there were a lot of positives to take away from scrimmages with Canton-Galva, Macksville and St. John.

“I thought our kids did a good job,” Meeks said. “Plenty of mental mistakes, but that is to be expected this time of summer. The kids are bigger and stronger and more confident than last year.”

Meeks said the Wildcats had their own team camp the first week of June and some players have stepped up this month.

“Brady (Helms) looked good as usual and will continue to be a beast for us,” Meeks said. “Both of my returning guards looked good and I think Dalton Vogts is going to turn into a really good offensive lineman. Corbin Unruh has put the work in this early and has really improved his footwork and should be good at quarterback for us this year.”

The Wildcats were 3-6 this past season.
