The 7th Football Tigers opened their home portion of the schedule with a win over the Thomas Jefferson Patriots by a score of 42-18.
The Tigers are reaping the benefits of an offensive line that is beginning to gel. Tackles Fau and Forshey, Guards Gaono and Smith, and Center William are becoming more and more consistent opening holes for the running and passing games. The first score of the game was a 30yd TD for Bradford set up by a sweep 25yd for Horry. An 8yd scamper by Sumter set up the Tigers second TD on a read by Vernon. The third score of the night was on an interception returned for a TD. With a score of 20-0 after half, the Tigers got the ball and on their first play Vernon connected with Horry for a beautiful 58yd TD only to be outdone by the incredible pancake block by wide receiver Jonathan McDaniel. Mujahid had another great wide receiver stalk block to break #18 for a long TD run.
The 7th Tigers sit at 3-0 with the remainder of their schedule only getting more difficult. Up to the task, the Tigers will play the Lebanon YellowJackets at home on Thursday Oct. 5 at 5:30pm.
