Head coach Rusty Morgan is confident in his team and ready to see what they can achieve this season. “These guys have been working and competing daily in the weight room and on the practice field.” Morgan said. “We are excited and taking advantage of every opportunity to get better for the upcoming season.” This is a team that has the potential for a lot of big plays. They plan to operate out of a multiple spread offense led by returning quarterback Wil Moyer (6-0, 175, Sr.), who passed for 22 touchdowns and 2,576 yards last year. Wide receiver Keaton Crooks (6-0, 180, Sr.) will continue to be a huge offensive asset for the Tigers, adding to his 11 touchdowns and 68 receptions over 1,117 yards from last season. Fellow receiver Harrison Wood (6-1, 175, Sr.) will also have chances to up his numbers of six touchdowns, 41 receptions and 487 yards. Senior running back Champ Wright (5-11, 215) will be key on the ground. With 79 carries over 476 yards last year, Wright made an impact and will need to do so even more this season. Dawson Williams (6-0, 215, Sr.) will be snapping the ball at the center, with Lukus Peery (5-11, 225, Jr.) holding the line next to him. 


The Tigers’ defensive style will be physical and aggressive. Seven starters will return on this side of the ball, including lineman Tristan Jackson (6-1, 205, Jr.), and defensive ends Koby Floyd (6-2, 210, Sr.) and Elijah Howell (6-3, 225, Jr.). Floyd will be an essential defensive player this season as he adds to his 87 tackles and 12 tackles for loss from last year. The bulk of the linebacker core consists of Hunter Puls (5-11, 200, Sr.), Kirk Huseman (5-11, 190, Sr.), and Hayden Fry (6-0, 195, Jr.). Puls has been the leading tackler the last two seasons and will no doubt maintain his reputation this year.
