PARADISE, Calif. -- Paradise football is still undefeated after six weeks of play and say they have no plans of sizzling down. 

The Bobcats are not only winning their games, but shutting out half of their opponents. 

“Not [surprised] at all," said captain Lukas Hartley. "I expect nothing else and I think everybody else out here agrees. We just plan on winning everyday, Monday through Thursday and Fridays especially.”

“It’s all hard work," said sophomore Ashton Wagner. "We’ve been out here since right after the [Camp] Fire. We’ve been practicing… it’s what we expected.”

Even when the Bobcats' lead scorer Lukas Hartley was out due to an injury, the Bobcats stepped up. For instance, sophomore Ashton Wagner scored four touchdowns in just one game for a 49-0 win over Durham High. 

"We have a lot of talent out here and more so than that, we have a lot of want-to's," said Hartley. "I think that’s really our driving force. I think you can take any given guy out here and put him on the field and he’s going to want to [win]." 

And even when one of the Bobcats' coaches got sidelined due to two major heart surgeries, the Bobcats persevered. 

“It just seems like there’s something every week," said head coach Rick Prinz. "Coach [Andy] Hopper is doing much better. He's at home now recovering. Hopefully, he will be out here in a couple of weeks just to say 'hi' and coach a little bit. But we just keep moving forward. That's what we're going to do no matter what happens." 

The Bobcats are 6-0 in its Independent league. The CIF is still working on where to place the team for a possible playoff run. 

The Bobcats will face Oroville at Harrison Stadium this Friday at 7:30 p.m.
