After a tough 0-3 start, the Tigers faced off against the 3-0 Rockbridge Bruins. The Bruins started with a 14-0 lead, but the Tigers were able to score 21 unanswered points before the Bruins could answer back making the score 21-21 at half. The second half would be all Tigers as they would hold the Bruins to 0 points. After a Preston Whitworth 9 yard touchdown, the Tigers would win 27-21 making them 1-3 on the year. Although this year has started off rough there has been some bright spots on this young Tiger team. Seniors Kaleb Herbel and Ben Weaver lead the team with 31 tackles each. While on the offensive side of the ball senior Preston Whitworth has 429 yards on 102 carries, and 4 touchdowns. All in all the future is bright for the Tigers as they play Olathe South this Friday at Bud Hertzog Stadium.
