Friday night's 41-3 win over Newcastle was more of the same, with the running back duo of Morgan Neal and Jesse Gregory helping to produce 260 rushing yards on just 31 carries and three touchdowns between them.
While the Tigers aren't passing a lot, they're making it count when they do.
“We've had a high completion percentage and a high ratio of touchdowns when we throw,” coach Phil Koons said. “We know people are gonna crowd the line of scrimmage on us, so we've got to be effective when we throw the ball.”
Defensively, the Tigers have been getting good leadership from players like Dawson Bassett, Jon-Michael Hollarn and Tanner Brannon.
Despite the easy work the Tigers have made of their schedule through four weeks, Koons isn't going to let his players relax.
“I'm a little bit of a perfectionist,” he said with a laugh. “I'm not satisfied with winning a few games early in the year. I want us to win all of them. Class 3A is as competitive a class as there is, so we know there will be some good teams there at the end. We want to be one of them.”
