Cedar Park anxious for very special opener

Cedar Park gearing up for special opener

Opening night in high school football is special all by itself, but for the Cedar Park Timberwolves, its off the charts.  They will open against powerhouse Aledo on August 29th and at the same time will be playing the first ever regular season game at any level at Baylor’s new McLane Stadium in Waco.

Head Coach Joe Willis understands his team’s excitment, but is quick to point out the main objective.  “Just playing in it is not going to be a good memory, you want to win that thing,” said Willis.  Cedar Park won the 4A Division two state championship two years ago while Aledo won that same title last year.  “Our kids have trained this spring and trained this summer with the idea that that is going to be a big ball game.  We know we’re playing a very good opponent and it’s a test that we put in front of our kids that we always want to be focused on the next game,” said Willis.  “We put the very best ball game of the year in a big stadium against a very good opponent and we did that to challenge our kids and I believe they’re going to respond to that challenge.” said Willis.

This game will also serve as a dry run for the operations of McLane Stadium, two days later Baylor will play their season opener against SMU
