The Tigers’ fast-paced, multiple spread offense should continue to put up big numbers. They will return eight offensive starters to the field, including quarterback Grant Elerick (6-0, 175, Sr.). Last season the hard-working QB completed 181-of-260 passes for 2,710 yards and 32 touchdowns and rushed for 306 yards and five touchdowns. Two receivers who will be in heavy rotation for Elerick are Gage Parrick (5-11, 175, Sr.) and Drew Elerick (5-11, 170, Sr.). Parrick had 55 receptions for 809 yards and seven touchdowns last year in addition to 390 rushing yards for eight TDs. Drew Elerick had 34 receptions for 378 yards and four touchdowns. Another offensive threat at receiver or tight end is Matthew Beck (6-0, 210, Sr.). Chayton Ellick (6-3, 280, Sr.) snaps the ball, while John Roggenkamp (6-1, 250, Sr.) helps anchor the offensive line.


This defense also looks to be quick and aggressive. Chayton Ellick starts on the line both ways. Jake Edwards (6-0, 190, Sr.) is one to watch for at defensive end. Edwards and Ellick combined for 96 tackles and six sacks last year. Outside linebacker Drew Elerick also returns as last year’s leading tackler with 103 tackles. Look for Gage Parrick at safety aiming to top his 92 tackles and four interceptions from last season. The Tigers are confident and eager for the season to begin. “Excited about this group of young men,” said head coach Chris Elerick. “There is a buzz around town and in the locker room. We have some big games early in the season and need to be ready to go, then head into district play.”
