With Apalachee and Heritage tied at halftime, Wildcat head coach Shane Davis told assistant Conner Foster he wanted something big to happen to start the second half.
Davis got his wish as freshman Stanley Williams returned the second half kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown. That play turned out to be huge as AHS went on to a 28-14 Region 8-AAAA victory at R. Harold Harrison Stadium. The win pushes the Wildcats to 3-1 in region play.
“All of our games are big,” Davis said. “That was a really good one to get. Heritage was a tough opponent. We knew they would be good defensively. Our kids played well and fought hard. You are going to have to be a second half team in this region.”
