FOOTBALL PREVIEW: Goals within reach for Tigers

Published 8:09pm Thursday, September 20, 2012

What the players saw during Monday’s film session was an offensive line that dominated in last week’s 39-0 win over region foe Shelby County.

That unit will need to be good again against Talladega, a team Hand said will “scare you.”

“It looks like they have a basketball team out there playing defense,” he said. “They’re all 6’3,” 6’4,” the linebackers are flying to the ball.”

WHO WILL WIN?

Last week’s win over Shelby County was a confidence-builder. A win over Talladega could give the Tigers full-blown momentum. With a familiar formula—stout defense and solid running game—look for Chilton County to get it done.
