“I wanted this job because I think this is a great community and a great program. I was able to join the guys in the spring and do some 7-on-7 work in the summer. We have around 42 kids, which is a big number for a Class A school. We will be young, but we should have some depth.”

Five Year Trend (Playoffs)

It really was a great season for Quapaw. They finally got over the hump and made the playoffs for the first time since 2014, and even won a playoff game. It was the team’s final season under head coach Chris Cawyer. J. MacArthur is taking over as the leader of the program in 2021.

This will be the team’s first season under head coach J. MacArthur. “We’re going to be running a spread offense,” MacArthur says, “We are still trying to find out who our quarterback is. We have a competition between a senior and two juniors right now.” Preston Thomasson will be a big part of what the Wildcats want to do on offense this year, after rushing for more than 500 yards as a junior in 2020. Depth is something that MacArthur says will be one of the team’s strengths, which you can’t often say for a Class A school. “We’re about 7-deep at the wide receiver spot. We’re about 2-3 deep at running back. We lost seven seniors, but we’re adding 20 freshmen,” MacArthur adds, “We have almost a 3-deep depth chart on our offensive line. We’re going to be young, but we do have great senior leadership.” This team has found out how to win the last couple years. MacArthur hopes to continue that in his first season leading the program. “This program had a winning season last year. We want to do that again and finish in the top two in the district,” MacArthur finishes, “We think we can be successful on offense. If we can gain some experience on defense, I think we’ll make a push toward the postseason and be a problem for other teams when we get there.”
