Cat Clash: Blue Springs/Blue Springs South Showdown 2012

Cats trying to be best at giving Schools bind together to help community By Kennedy Dujakovich Blue Springs High School Student Senate president

This weeklong event at Blue Springs High School is extremely competitive. We have a canned food drive, a competition with South at Chick-fil-A, and the game will be huge. This year, we are having a class competition for our canned food drive. The class/grade level that brings the most canned foods will win a prize for their grade. This will hopefully maximize the amount of items we bring in. The most competitive part about this week is the Chick-fil-A competition between us and South. There are two main things we have to do in order to win the competition – the school that buys the most Original Chicken sandwiches and decorate the restaurant the best will be declared the winner. Each school has the entire week to get the most sandwiches sold. At Blue Springs, we have many different ways to achieve the goal of winning this competition. We are encouraging all sports teams, clubs, teachers and staff to go and order

as many sandwiches as they can. We also have students who are willing to stand at the drive-thru and tell the customers to order their sandwiches under Blue Springs High School. Lastly, we have teachers who are willing to go get the sandwich orders for us during school. The second part is the decorating. Chick-fil-A gave us Sept. 30 to decorate half of the store in purple and gold. Chick-fil-A will judge on how well we decorate the store. The winner of the competition will be announced at halftime at the football game on Friday. We are really trying to push ourselves this year to win the competition because it really shows how much school spirit we have. What better way to show everyone that we are proud to be Wildcats? Let’s talk about Friday night’s football game. Just writing about this gives me the chills. It’s the seniors’ last shot to show our town what side has more spirit. The student body made T-shirts for everyone. We hope the student section is filled with them. We are planning on making posters and cheering on our team. And as always, it’s a great day to be a Wildcat.

By Meredith Morris

Blue Springs South High School Student Senate president

This week has always been known for the monumental rivalry between the Jaguars and Wildcats. Although the Jaguars fell short last year, we marched on to be named state champions, and we’re hungrier than ever for a win. We’re determined to let the Wildcats know that THIS IS OUR HOUSE. While this week is celebrated for competition in football, it also highlights our citizens’ compassion for our community. Community Unity Week gives everyone in the city an opportunity to give back to those less fortunate. Considering the economic state, there has never been a more important time to join together for the common good. I’m proud to say that the Blue Springs School District’s elementary and middle schools have made an even stronger commitment to get involved and make a difference during this week. Student senators from both schools met to discuss how to include more of the community for a more complete sense of unity. We decided that encouraging future Jaguars and Wildcats to join our benevolent efforts would increase the output of donated goods and instill the value of service.

With the help of the Community Services League, all participating schools have held a non-perishable food drive and have collected hygiene and cleaning products that will benefit families in our community. In the spirit of community and friendly competition, the total amount of goods donated by all participating schools will be announced at halftime of the big game. Students at all grade levels also helped pack the district’s Closet at the Paul Consiglio Center with donations of jeans, gloves, coats and hats for students who don’t have the appropriate clothing for the upcoming winter. The Blue Springs Chick-fil-A graciously offered to hold a spirit competition at its restaurant all this week. The restaurant was split in half and decorated according to each school’s colors. If you ate at Chick-fil-A this week and mentioned for which side of town you are rooting, a percentage of your bill was put aside. We’ll learn at halftime which side of town showed the most spirit, and that school will receive 10 percent of the restaurant’s weekly profits. Thank you, Chick-fil-A, for your efforts to better our entire community. And by purchasing this special edition, CSL will be able to pay utility bills for families in need. Thank you for your support and, as always, it’s a great day to be a Jaguar.

Teaching youth to give

Community Unity Week helps those in need in city

For the 17th year, our community will host Community Unity Week during the week of Oct. 1 to 5. This weeklong celebration unites our students, staff and citizens of Blue Springs to demonstrate our commitment to our community. The week’s events are more than a football game between two top-tier teams in the state. It is an opportunity to demonstrate to our youth the importance of giving. As part of the week, the district will be collecting canned goods and clothing items to help those in need. Our 23 schools will be participating and encouraging students to bring in items and monetary donations. These much-needed supplies help replenish items that serve the community yearround. Collected food and clothing are given to families in need throughout the year and during winter’s coldest months. Donations will help the families who would otherwise suffer hardships when it comes to paying rent, food and heating bills. Community members may bring in items or monetary donations to any of our schools or directly to the Community Services League, 200

paul Kinder COMMUNITY UNITY WEEK Paul Kinder is superintendent of the Blue Springs School District. S.W. 10th St. in Blue Springs. Come join us support our two premier football teams Oct. 5. It will be an exciting game and our students will showcase their talents and exemplary sportsmanship. But above all, we will see acts of kindness and goodwill that serve as examples of strong character and commitment to service. Blue Springs is truly a “community of unity.”

Friday night, two football teams will take the field. It is no secret that Blue Springs South and Blue Springs have excellent football programs. Both have won state championships, and both will likely be vying for a championship again this year. But the goal of the week leading up to the highly anticipated game is not to focus on the cross-town football game. It is to come together to help those in need within the Blue Springs community. Community Unity Week was started 17 years ago with the main purpose of shifting the focus from the football game to helping others. The game is at 7 p.m. Friday at Blue Springs South High School. One of the biggest events is the non-perishable food and clothing

drive at all of the district schools. Hygiene items were also collected. Students, families and community members were encouraged to bring items as well as monetary donations to a Blue Springs school. Donations can still be taken directly to CSL, 200 S.W. 10th St. “The food and clothing collected are given to families in need throughout the year and during the coldest months,” said Superintendent Paul Kinder. “Donations will help the families who would otherwise suffer hardships when it comes to paying rent, food and heating bills.” The food will be donated to the Blue Springs Community Services League and the clothing items are being donation to The Closet, the district’s clothes closet at the Paul Consiglio Center. The school that collected the most items will be announced during halftime of the football game.

Quarterback Dalton Brewer, left, and running back Khorey Kilgore have been a strong duo on offense this season for the 10th-ranked Jaguars.

Duo realizes dream of playing for Jags in Cat Clash By Bill Althaus

When Dalton Brewer was a youngster growing up in Blue Springs, he had a dream. “I played Little League football, and we’d go to all the Blue Springs South-Blue Springs football games,” said Brewer, the starting quarterback for the No. 10-ranked Jaguars. “I’d be sitting in the stands dreaming about playing in that game, and now I have the chance to make that dream come true Friday night.” The 19th Cat Clash takes place at 7 p.m. Friday at Larry Stewart Memorial Stadium, where Brewer and his Jaguar teammates hope to keep their offense in high gear. Brewer and the Jaguars totaled 484 yards of offense in last week’s 44-14 victory

over Lee’s Summit. “That was a great confidence booster,” said Brewer, who was 15 of 17 for 273 yards. “That was a great win to have before playing Blue Springs, because our offense has struggled a couple of times this season, but it all came together pretty well last week.” When Brewer was throwing the ball, he was handing off to running back Khorey Kilgore, who rushed for 118 yards on just six carries. “It all starts up front and our line has been great all season,” Kilgore said. “Dalton is doing a great job at quarterback and I think we’re a much better team now than we were at the start of the season. “I can’t stress how important our line is, but right now, everyone is contributing on offense and our defense is great. I think that win over Lee’s Summit was a big win because we were coming off the (28-0) loss

to Rockhurst and we needed to make some good things happen. “We’re as confident right now as we have been any time this season.” Kilgore can’t wait for Friday night. “I’m a senior, we’re playing Blue Springs on our home field.” Kilgore said, “it doesn’t get much better than that. Our coaches tell us to approach each game the same, to work hard and to be prepared every Friday night – and I think we’ve done that this season. “But a rivalry game – especially a rival like Blue Springs – is just so much fun. It’s the game you think about when the schedule first comes out. They’re the guys we see all the time. They’re good guys, and we have so much respect for them and their coaches – but we also want to beat them. In the regular season, it doesn’t get any

Cat Clash: Blue Springs/Blue Springs South Showdown 2012

A large difference ‘It all starts up front’ for Wildcats as Keltner, Thompson anchor strong line By Bill Althaus


Blue Springs offensive linemen John Keltner, left, and Tyler ‘Tank’ Thompson have made a big difference in clearing the way for junior running back Dalvin Warmack and senior quarterback Wylson Lamb.

It doesn’t matter how intense the spotlight is that shines on Blue Springs running back Dalvin Warmack, the junior standout immediately steps aside to make sure the members of the Wildcats offensive line get their moment in the limelight. “I’m nothing without the line and our coaches,” said Warmack, who scored four touchdowns in last week’s 47-14 victory over Lee’s Summit North. “Those guys open holes big enough for you to run through.” And two of the Wildcats best are seniors Tyler “Tank” Thompson, a 325-pound left tackle, and John Keltner, an all-state guard. They anchor a line that is so good that it’s getting plenty of attention. The other starters are seniors Austin Reyes, the center, and Dalton Broyles, the left guard, and junior right tackle Jordan Benson. “It all starts up front,” coach Kelly Donohoe said, “and the guys on our line have done a great job this season. They bring it every game, every down, every play.” First-year full-time starter Wylson Lamb is settling into a groove as the Wildcats quarterback and enjoyed a big game last week, completing 10 of 15 passes for 201 yards and a touchdown. “Our line is great,” Lamb said. “I have so much confidence in them and I know our backs feel the same way.” As the Class 6 No. 2-ranked Wildcats head into Friday night’s Cat Clash at No. 10 Blue Springs South, the team that wins the battle of the trenches will have an edge on winning the Suburban Big Six showdown. “This season has gone pretty well,” Thompson said, “with the exception of the loss to (Lee’s Summit) West. But we all see that as a wake-up call. West is a good team,

and we took a lot of things away from that game that will help us the rest of the season. “With our line, our skill people and our defense, we have the chance to go a long way. And the guys on the line want to make good things happen. We have a great chemistry and work hard. People ask us if we’re going to work harder this week because we’re playing South and I tell them we can’t work any harder than we’ve been working because we give it 100 percent every time we’re out on the field. “But it’s a different week at school when we play South. Everyone comes up and asks, ‘How you looking?’ or ‘Are you ready?’ and I say, ‘Of course we’re ready.’ We beat them in districts last year and they still wound up going to state and winning a state championship. “We think we have a team that’s capable of going to state this year and I know they feel the same way. It’s a big game for both teams, and I know they’re going to be working as hard as we are. It should be a great game.” Keltner agrees with his line mate. “It’s so great to be a part of a game like this because a lot of high school players never experience anything like that excitement that comes with playing a big rival,” Keltner said. “I’ve known about this rivalry since I was in the seventh grade. In the eighth grade I knew it was huge and then when I went to the Freshman Center, with kids who would go to South, it got even bigger. All I thought about back then was playing in this game, and now I’m a senior and this one’s it – the last time to play South. “It’s going to be a crazy week at school, with everyone asking us about South. We focus on every opponent, and take each game one at a time. And now, it’s time to focus on South. It doesn’t get any bigger because they’re our big rival and they’re our next opponent. “It’s go time and game on! And I can’t wait.”

Insider’s view


(Above) Blue Springs South senior safety Jordan Moon has been witness or played in ‘14 or 15’ of the 18 games against Blue Springs in his lifetime. He will play in No. 19 Friday. (Below) Jordan walks off the field with his father, Mike, before he became a Jaguar himself.

Blue Springs South safety Jordan Moon has a unique perspective on the Cat Clash By Bill Althaus

Other than a few assorted coaches on the sidelines at Friday night’s much anticipated Cat Clash between crosstown rivals Blue Springs and the host Blue Springs South Jaguars, no one has witnessed as many of these games as Jordan Moon. The South senior defensive back is the son of Jaguar assistant coach Mike Moon and the younger brother of former South standout Logan Moon. “This is the 19th time Blue Springs and South have played – the series is tied 9-all – and I think I’ve probably been to at least 14 or 15 of them,” Jordan Moon said. “I’m sure my mom took me when I was too young to remember the games, and I was a ball boy from the time I was a kindergartner until the eighth grade. “Then, I was a freshman football player and went to all the games so I’ve seen just

about all of them.” Jordan could play a big role for the defending Class 6 state champion Jaguars in Friday night’s contest as the Wildcats offense has piled up the points this season. “We’re going to have to play a great defensive game to win Friday night because Blue Springs has a great team,” Jordan said. “They are well-coached and have great players. This is such a big game, it’s the game everyone at Blue Springs and Blue Springs South look forward to every year. “I remember when I was a ball boy and my dad was a coach I’d dream about playing in it one day, and now, I’m a senior and this is my last time to play Blue Springs. I’m going to miss it – it’s such a great rivalry.” Growing up in Blue Springs, Jordan played youth football with many of the players he will line up against Friday night at

Jaguar Pride, Golden Regiment bands set for show By Kelly Evenson

No matter who is asked in the music departments of Blue Springs South or Blue Springs High School, the annual showdown between the two powerhouse teams is no different than any other football game. “The bands in the Blue Springs District strive to encourage a mutual appreciation for each other’s effort,” said Ken Hansen, director of bands at Blue Springs South. “We feel that music is not a competition against each other, instead it a competition against ourselves. The Blue Springs School District has an outstanding tradition of excellent marching bands, and we expect to maintain that tradition.” This is a home game for Blue Springs South, so the Jaguar Pride will perform during halftime. The 2012 field show is “Follow Me” with music by Benoit Jutras. “We selected a show that we felt best showcased our students’ talents and challenged them to achieve excellence while at the same time providing a highly entertaining show for the audience,” said Hansen, who just started his

first year at Blue Springs South. “Our students had a great summer camp. They have adapted very well to the new leadership here at Blue Springs South, and the students have proven to be very motivated to be a great band. It is a pleasure and an honor to work with them each day.” The 2012 field show for Blue Springs High School is “Up.” “The members of the Golden Regiment have been incredibly focused and a blast to work sideby-side with,” Allshouse said. “We always hope the end product is great, but the process is equally if not more important and that has been the real story of the season thus far.” In addition to the weekly football games, both marching bands have an active competition season. Blue Springs South will compete in the Blue Springs Marching Invitational; the Park Hill Marching Band Festival; the Renegade Revue in Tulsa, Okla.; the Odessa Marching Invitational and the Mizzou Champion of Champions in Columbia, Mo. “Our goal for this year is to improve daily in all phases of the music program. We have a great


JAGUAR PRIDE band family and we strive to work together to achieve success together,” Hansen said. “The wonderful thing about band is that it is subjective. We define our own success. We try to be successful during every rehearsal and every performance.” For Blue Springs High School, Webb City; the Broken Arrow Invitational in Broken Arrow,

Okla.; and Bands of America Super Regionals in St. Louis and Atlanta, Ga. are on the schedule. The band will also be traveling to Hawaii in November. “We prepare for every show and every game the same way. It is always about consistency,” Allshouse said. “The goal remains consistent from year to year – ‘A cul-

ture of unstoppable commitment.’ We hope at the end of the season that through the medium of marching band that we have been able to as a group learn character traits such as perseverance, hard work, commitment, personal sacrifice for the good of the group and giving of oneself to something that is larger than themselves.”

bigger than this game, and I can’t wait to play in it.” Both Kilgore and Brewer were backups last season, although each saw playing time in both the Blue Springs contest and the Jaguars’ eventual state championship victory. “This game is so much fun, there is so much excitement, at school and also in the community,” Brewer said, “and this year, it will mean even more to the seniors because you want to beat your biggest rival when you’re a senior. They are such

a great team and the rivalry gets everyone excited.” Kilgore agrees. “When I was a freshman, everyone talked about Blue Springs and Blue Springs South and their football teams,” said Kilgore, who attended the Freshman Center (where students go on to attend South or Blue Springs high schools). “You knew it was a big deal, but you don’t realize how big of a deal it is until you get to your high school. “And then, when you get to play in the game, you realize it’s huge. And being a senior makes it even more meaningful.”

Larry Stewart Memorial Stadium. “The best thing about this rivalry is that it’s a good rivalry where you’re playing against guys you grew up playing football with,” Jordan said. “It’s not one of those hated rivalries where you hate everyone on the other team. I have a lot of friends who play football at Blue Springs. “We all want the bragging rights, but when it’s over, it’s over and we can shake hands and still be good friends.” But it ends with the friendship. You’re never going to find Jordan Moon in purple-and-gold Wildcat gear. “When I was a little kid, I wouldn’t even write with a purple pen,” Jordan said, laughing. “It’s not quite that bad now. My brother plays baseball at the University of Central Arkansas, and their colors are purple and gray, so I make sure I wear their colors that have more gray than purple. There’s just something about wearing that purple …” It might surprise some Jaguar fans to find

out that Jordan and his dad don’t talk football 24/7. “If I ask him about a game, or something, we’ll talk about it,” Jordan said, “but we don’t talk football all the time. It might be a topic of conversation on a car ride to school or a car ride home after a game, but we talk about other stuff besides football. People are surprised when I tell them that since he’s a coach and I play – but we mostly just talk about stuff all guys talk about with their dads.” South lost to Blue Springs in district play last year, but rebounded to win the state championship while the Wildcats were home watching on television. “I know they’re really going to want to win this game because of what happened last year,” Jordan said, “and I don’t blame them. If we hadn’t won state last year, it would have been tough to have lost to Blue Springs in districts. It’s huge to win state – it’s why you play. But if you can’t win state, you want to win this game. Every week, every game is a big game, but they don’t come much bigger than this one.”
