Senior Tyler Rohwer, was excited about the outcome of the first game and has high hopes for the rest of the season.
“We started out really strong putting points up super early and we kept up the energy the entire game. We had some big and key plays that could have changed the outcome of the game,” Rohwer said. “We have a lot of stuff that we need to work on still, but we just need to keep working everyday and get better.”
The Tigers will take on the Oakmont Vikings this Friday night, at Oakmont. The Vikings are the Tigers out-of-league rival, the Tigers beat the Vikings last season, and hope to improve their record versus the Vikings.
