Having one big-play wideout can be a game-changer for an offense. Having two is even better.
The Wylie football team is currently enjoying the latter with seniors Creed Cooper and Reed Hughes, who’ve made their presence felt in a major way during the Bulldogs’ 2-0 start.
In combining for 10 catches for 242 yards and a pair of touchdowns in victories over Brownwood (28-7) and Lubbock Monterey (24-6), Cooper and Hughes have given quarterback Balin Valentine and the Wylie offense, in general, a pair of big-time weapons on the edges. And though the two friends share a light-hearted rivalry that goes back years, they’re more than content to share the spotlight — and touches — if it means continued success for their team.
