Ending the 2018 Spring Football regiment, the Tigers made their way up Hwy 53 to face the Dragons of Pickens County in the newly renovated Dragons Stadium. The 2018 Tigers were able to get a look at a some new faces in positions that were left void after last year. With the loss of the 2017 seniors, Coach Sid Maxwell made a few moves to fill some very important holes in his offense.
The first of those was in Sevaughn Clark stepping in to the quarterback position. Clark saw a little action in the 2017 season and with the game at Pickens, it looks to be his when they play for real in August. Clark preformed very well as he provided most of the Tigers running attack. With accuracy, Clark can strike up the band this year giving the Tigers a deep ball option in an offense that keeps you on your toes with the running game. The second major move is T.J. Wilson switching to the other side of the ball. At defensive end last year Wilson set the pace for the rest of the Tigers in their attack on the opposing offense. Wilson at running back and tight end for the spring game preformed as if he had played there for many seasons. This move will give the Tigers a sizable threat with the strong ball carrier and the hands to catch the ball.
In the receiving corps, three young men proved they are ready. Ethan Cameron, Hunter Barron and Dakota Sonnichsen ran excellent routes and had the receptions to keep the Tigers in the fight. Over all the Tigers looked really good on defense as well and have all summer for Coach Maxwell to work on the few shortcomings in the game against the Dragons. In a spring scrimmage where its more about seeing what you have and what you need to work on, the points on the board are still important to some. The Tigers fell in this one by a score 42-31 to the Dragons of Pickens County.
