We rushed for 468 yards on 42 carries. Jaiden Daniels rushed for 233 yards on 16 carries and had 3 TD's. John Paul Allen had 10 carries for 120 yards and 1 TD. Jacari Huff added a TD as well on a long run,” Coach Hollars said.
The Tigers were off this past week and return back to Ray Lamb Stadium this upcoming Friday to take on Lincoln County. “We are looking forward to the challenge of playing Lincoln County this week. Our focus is tackling and swarming the ball on defense and ball security on offense. Playing complimentary football this week is critical for our success,” Hollars explained.
