Central Football Players Get Big-Time Honors

Posted: Updated:

ELLENSBURG, Wash. -- The Central Washington Wildcats are calling on the people of Eastern Washington to come out and support the top-ranked Wildcats.

The Wildcats have 13 all-conference players for people to come and see, including GNAC Offensive Player of the Year Johnny Spevak and Defensive Player of the Year Buddy Wood.

Blaine Bennett also took home the Coach of the Year honors.

Bennett is calling on fans to show up in force for the Wildcats 1st playoff game.

"Having people fly into Ellensburg, Washington and play in Tomlinson Stadium, it's just a great home field advantage," said Bennett. "I hope the wind blows, I hope its cold, and I hope we really have an Ellensburg fall day."

The Wildcats have a bye week this week in the 1st round of the playoffs before hosting the winner of Texas A&M-Kingsville and Tarleton State November 21st.
