Some have inquired about summer prospect camps being offered in our area and in the region. This is what I have seen and heard from coaches so far (sorry the images are flipped).
June 1 - Lindenwood University
June 3 and 15 - Pitt State University/UofM (see the pdf flyer below and image above)
June 3, 17, July 16 and 23 - Western Illinois in Macomb, Il and Chicago, Il
I would encourage you to seek out college coaches personally (via their team websites) and see what prospect camps they will be attending or if they would prefer to have you attend their own camps. Happy trip planning!
Football is community and community takes time and good communication. Knowing the transition in head coach has prompted questions or concerns, Coach Pederson and the football staff desire some time to communicate our vision and goals for the summer and fall of 2016. We look forward to connecting and to the next season! Anyone with a rising high school player, please join us at WCA in the theatre on May 4th at 7pm.
Here is a link to a game recap and from STLHighSchoolSports: http://t.co/4hbEOMWwac
Steve Webb broke the career rushing record in a 49-14 win over Lutheran South. The offense scored on 5 of its 6 first half possessions to take a 34-7 lead at halftime. The special teams unit blocked two punts and consistently gave the offense a short field.

The Wildcat Defense held early in the game against great Lutheran North field position and then scored twice in the first half to open a big lead. Offensive and Special Teams miscues gave Lutheran North short fields on their first two drives but the Westminster defense forced a turnover on downs at the 6 yard line on the first drive and a punt on the second. Cameron Tucker than picked off a tipped pass and ran it 20 yards for a touchdown to give the Wildcats a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. With only seconds remaining in the first half and the Cats up 21-0, Steve Webb stripped the ball from a Crusader receiver and rumbled 70 yards to paydirt to give the home team a 28-0 lead heading into the half. On the day the defense gave up 60 rushing yards on 29 carries and 134 yards through the air.
The offense sputtered early but got it going in the second quarter. Evan Johnson hooked up with Dyllan Conway on 28 yard touchdown pass and then Steve Webb ran it in from 7 yards after the Cameron Tucker pick 6. Webb rounded out the scoring in the third quarter with a 4 yard touchdown run and picked up 158 yards on 21 carries. The passing game went 8 for 13 accruing 118 yards.
The team hits the road next Saturday for a short trip to MICDS for another Metro League tilt. Kickoff is 2:00.
The Westminster Football Team got out to an early lead against St. Dominic on Saturday and never looked back on its way to a 42-0 half time lead. Steve Webb scored three times on the ground in the first half and racked up 114 yards on only seven carries. Cameron Tucker carried the ball three times for 46 yards that included a 27 yard touchdown run in the second quarter. Evan Johnson threw for one touchdown to Logan Sells and ran for another. The offense racked up 200 yards rushing on 20 carries and 142 yards passing on 15 attempts.
The defense was stingy again this week only giving up a score late in the game when the starters had been off the field for a while. Cooper Moore had 10 total tackles including 1.5 for a loss. Drew Melaragno collected his second interception in as many games and the defense only gave up 90 yards rushing on 30 carries and 81 yards on 10 of 26 passing, most of those yards coming against the substitutes in the second half.
The Cats open up league play at home against a strong Lutheran North team this Saturday at 1:00. North lost a heartbreaker against Clayton during week one and took on Class 6 SLUH in week two.
