Next Week: Troup at Quitman; West Rusk at Big Sandy
Quick Take: The Tigers suffered an upset last week and it's probably safe to say that practices were not too much fun in Tiger Country this past week...Look for the Maroons to have most of the wrinkles ironed out this go around...If the defense can come around this week, this one could get ugly...Troup allowed Quinlan-Ford to rack up 320 yards on the ground a week ago...Tiger QB Blake Lynch went 6-13 for 94 yards and 2 TDs...He also had an 80-yard touchdown scamper called back in the first stanza.
Groveton Indians (0-1) at No. 8 Alto Yellowjackets (0-1)
7:30 p.m. Friday at Yellowjacket Stadium
Coaches: Kevin Parker, Groveton; Paul Gould, Alto
Last Week: Trinity 30, Groveton 6; Elkhart 36, Alto 35
Next Week: Hull-Daisetta at Groveton; Alto at Tenaha
Quick Take: A few burps and hiccups felled the Mean Sting last week against a good Elkhart team to spoil the opening of the Paul Gould era...Turnovers plagued the 'Jackets last week, with the Elks scoring 16 points in the final 2:18 to wrestle the win away from Alto...Despite the loss the 'Jackets rushed for 388 yards with Zac Sturns leading the way with 196 on 18 carries...Groveton showed little to get excited about last week, so expect the Yellowjackets to recover and give Gould that first win as a head coach this week
