The offense was led by Kyle Wade, who had two rushing and two throwing TDs on the evening. Donte Smoot, Jack Perkins and Steven Edwards each had a rushing TD in the game, while Noah Hurlock and Kohl Beard each caught a TD pass. This was the second week in a row the starters didn’t have a turnover in the game.

On defense the Kats were led in tackles by Jabrian Adams with eight, and Luke Cameron and Javias Gray with six tackles. Dashawn Winston had a very solid night on our special teams with five tackles, many inside the 25-yard line on kickoffs. Our defense also forced five turnovers, which many led to many of the scores in the 34-point second quarter. Noah Hurlock, Anthony Fox, Noah Cameron, and Colt Munsey each had a fumble recovery, while Luke Cameron had an interception in the game.

Oct. 27-Nov.3 IHSAA Sectional   Kokomo 13 - Harrison 8
In a great defensive battle, the Kats pulled out a come-from-behind, fourth period win over Harrison. We scored in the early part of the quarter making the game 13-8, and held on the rest of the way.

On offense Kokomo was led by Kyle Wade and Jack Perkins. Kyle had 63 yards rushing and two TDs, while Jack had 62 rushing and 61 yards receiving for the game.

On defense Noah Hurlock had a monster game with five tackles for a loss and 11 total tackles leading the Kats. Luke Cameron had seven tackles and an interception to seal the win late in the game, while Aion Jones had the lone fumble recovery in the game and also had seven tackles.

It was a total team win; everybody contributed and those are the fun ones late in the year to be involved in, especially in the playoffs...

McCutcheon 42 - Huntington North 7
Kokomo 37 - McCutcheon 7
With a great team performance last Friday the Wildkats were able to defeat McCutcheon 37-7.

This team has had this in them all year; hopefully, we can keep this same focus in practice and attention to detail when we play again this Friday!!
Offensively we played very well. First of all, very few costly penalties and no turnovers were a huge factor. Kyle Wade had a monster first half throwing the football; Kyle was 11-for-14 and had three TDs with 241 yards for the game. Steven Edwards had five catches for 168 yards and two of the TDs. Kohl Beard had huge catch on our first drive which set up our first touchdown. Noah Hurlock had a TD
catch to end our first half scoring. Kyle had a rushing TD and Jack Perkins led us in rushing with 110 yards and a rushing touchdown. Max Waltemath added a 27-yard field goal in the fourth quarter.

On defense we had another very solid effort by our entire squad. Jabrian Adams led us in tackles with six, while Noah Hurlock and Noah Cameron each added five tackles. Cameron had our only turnover on the night with an interception; Noah also had three pass breakups on the game.

This week we travel to Zionsville to play our regional game. The action starts at 7:00 pm. We are looking forward to the challenge of trying to win our second regional championship in three years.

Nov. 10 IHSAA Regional @ Zionsville 7:00 pm Kokomo 33 - Zionsville 21
Wow........that kind of sums up the feelings of Friday’s game with Zionsville.

We dug a huge hole, and then we fought our way out and earned a convincing win over a good Zionsville football team. After one of the worst first quarters I have ever been a part of, we were down 21-0. We had three lost fumbles (one of the fumbles was returned for a TD), one interception, and two lost onside kicks. Honestly, to only be down by 21 was pretty fortunate.

We were able to score 14 points in the second quarter and took control of the game even though we were still behind. We came out and tied the game in the third and then took over in the fourth with two more scores. The final score was 33-21.

On offense Kyle Wade had a big game. He rushed for 123 yards and one TD. Jack Perkins had two rushing TD's, and Noah Hurlock had one rushing and one receiving TD. Kyle also threw for 94 yards and one TD to Hurlock.

On defense we had a great game. After the first quarter, until we had a two-touchdown lead, our defense played outstanding, allowing very few yards and first downs and also creating some turnovers of their own to help us out.

Hurlock also led us in tackles with 13; Noah also had a sack and three tackles for a loss. Noah Cameron had five tackles and huge interception in the second quarter, which the offense took the ball and scored with under a minute to go before half. Jabrian Adams also had five tackles and Kohl Beard had a fumble recovery.

Thank goodness we play at home this week. Game time is currently set for 8:00 pm on Friday at Walter Cross Field. We play Michigan City. It is their first appearance in a semi-state, and it is our second trip in three years to this stage. Come out and support the Kats....bundle up and have some FUN with us!!!!!!! Kokomo has played over 90 years of football; this is the first ever semi-state we have hosted!!!!!!!
- Coach Colby
Nov. 17 IHSAA Semi-State @ Kokomo 8:00 pm Kokomo 21 - Michigan City 14
WOW……first off thanks for all the people that came out to support the KATS. The stands were packed!!! What a great game our players played to win our first ever semi-state game 21-14. Then kudos to all the fans that stuck out the rain in the second half to celebrate with us on the field afterwards……

On offense we had a very successful night mixing up our running and passing game to keep Michigan City’s defense honest. Jack Perkins led our rushing
attack with 46 yards rushing and one TD. Kyle Wade had another great night throwing; he was 9-for-14 with 194 yards and two TDs. One was to Perkins, and the other was to Javias Grey, his first catch of the season and it was a huge score right before half to take a 21-7 lead into the locker room.

Our defense played solid as always. We created four turnovers on the night and really except for a misalignment on defense, never gave up a big play.
Brody Smith had a GAME; he led us in tackles with 11,and he also had a fumble recovery and an interception. Noah Cameron had an interception as
well, and Javias also had a fumble recovery on defense. Noah Hurlock was second on the team with nine stops on the night.

This week will be an exciting week for Kokomo as we travel to Lucas Oil to play in the STATE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME. Game time is 7:00 Friday
night. Please come down enjoy the venue of Lucas Oil Stadium, one of the finest stadiums in the NFL……Kokomo’s first ever state game in football.
Lets FILL our side of the field. By the way since Lucas Oil has opened Kokomo has played three games in the stadium and is a perfect 3-0……….l
like that stat…….

Nov. 24 IHSAA State @ Lucas Oil Stadium 7:05 pm Columbus East 42 - Kokomo 28
First off, thanks to everybody that made the trip to
watch us in the state championship game. It didn’t
turn out the way we hoped with the Kats falling 42-
28. We pulled within seven points in the fourth
quarter 28-21, but could never take the lead in the

On offense we had a very successful night running
and throwing the ball. Jack Perkins led our team in
rushing with 147 yards on 21 carries and a TD.
Luke Cameron added a rushing TD. Kyle Wade
was 8-for-11 passing for 111 yards and two TDS.
Jack and Luke both had a receiving TD.

On defense we were led in tackles by Javias Gray,
Jabrian Adams, and Kohl Beard - all with eight
tackles - and Brody Smith had six.

Once again, thanks for your support on Friday and
throughout the season.
