SEPT 24

(ROCKDALE)–THE ROCKDALE TIGERS ARE BACK IN

ACTION TONIGHT AS THEY OPEN DISTRICT PLAY BY HOSTING

MCGREGOR. MCGREGOR COMES INTO THE GAME LIKE THE

TIGERS AT 2 AND 2 ON THE SEASON. THE TIGERS ARE LOOKING

TO RIGHT THE SHIP AND MAKE A BETTER SHOWING AFTER LAST

WEEK’S STRUGGLES.

THE TIGERS WILL SEE A BIG TEAM ON THE FIELD TONIGHT.

ROCKDALE TIGER HEAD COACH JACOB CAMPSEY SAYS

MCGREGOR HAS A LOT OF SIZE…

“YEAH, THEY’RE HUGE. THAT’S THE THING ABOUT THEM,

WHEN YOU LOOK AT THEM. THEY’RE REALLY REALLY BIG

AND STRONG. BOTH FRONTS. BUT OFFENSIVE LINE-WISE,

THEY’RE STRONG. AND THEIR QUARTERBACK MAKES THEM

GO. HE’S THE KID THAT WAS THEIR RUNNING BACK LAST

YEAR, AND HE’S A BIG OL’ DUDE. THAT’S ONE THING

MCGREGOR’S KIND OF BEEN KNOWN FOR LATELY, IS

THEY’RE GOING TO HAVE SOME BIG OL’ STOUT DUDES

CARRYING THE FOOTBALL. SO, HE’S ABOUT 6 FOOT, 215

PROBABLY. AND AS A QUARTERBACK, HE’S CARRIED

IT 85 TO 90 TIMES THIS YEAR.”

COACH JOHN KOVAR SAYS THE BEARCATS CAN DO A

VARIETY OF THINGS ON OFFENSE…

“THEY’RE A WELL-BALANCED TEAM. THEY’LL PASS

AND RUN. THEY HAVE A VERY ATHLETIC QUARTERBACK.

HE PASSES WELL, BUT ALSO THEY RUN HIM A LOT IN THE

RUN GAME, AND THEN IF EVERYONE’S COVERED, HE’LL

PULL IT DOWN AND RUN TOO. SO, THAT’S ALWAYS A

SCARY DEAL, ALWAYS ADDS TO HOW YOU HAVE TO

PREPARE FOR THAT TEAM.”

THE EAGLES ARE 2 AND 2 ON THE SEASON. THE EAGLES

ARE LED BY NEW HEAD COACH NICK MOREHEAD, A

2008 GRADUATE OF ROCKDALE HIGH SCHOOL

THE EAGLES INSTALLED THE SLOT-T AS THEIR OFFENSIVE

SCHEME IN THE 2021 SEASON. THE OFFENSE IS BASED AROUND

THE GROUND GAME AND ALLOWS TEAMS TO CONTROL THE

CLOCK AND THEREFORE CONTROL THE RHYTHM AND PACE

OF THE GAME.

MOREHEAD SAYS THE EAGLES ARE CONSTANTLY

SHOWING PROGRESS WITH THE SLOT-T

OFFENSE…

“WE’RE GETTING BETTER AND BETTER. WE STARTED

FROM SCRATCH RUNNING THE SLOT-T, AND WE’RE ADDING

THINGS EVERY WEEK, AND PROGRESSING IN THE OFFENSE,

AND THE KIDS ARE DOING A GOOD JOB AT IT. AND

THEY’RE ALLOWING US TO ADD MORE AND MORE EVERY

WEEK, AND BE MORE COMPLEX IN WHAT WE DO.”

IN THE DISTRICT OPENER TONIGHT. LEXINGTON EAGLE

HEAD COACH KIRK MUHL SAYS FRANKLIN WILL STICK

WITH THEIR TRADITIONAL APPROACH, BUT THEY WILL

ALSO SHOW A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT LOOKS…

“OFFENSIVELY, THEY RUN THE SLOT-T. THEY

HAVE GOTTEN OUT OF IT SOME. HE’S ADDED SOME

WRINKLES INTO THE PASSING GAME, AS FAR AS, HE

WILL GO WITH SOME SPREAD A LITTLE BIT. BUT THEY

HAVE A LOT OF DIFFERENT FORMATIONS, JUST TRYING

TO CATCH YOU NUMBER-WISE EVERYWHERE, SO

WE’RE GOING TO HAVE TO MAKE SURE WE’RE GOOD

WITH OUR ALIGNMENT AND GETTING LINED UP AND

GETTING IN THE RIGHT SPOTS.”

OFFENSIVE SCHEME. COACH HAIRE, THEY’VE BEEN

RUNNING THAT GROUND-BASED SLOT-T ATTACK FOR

QUITE A WHILE, WITH QUITE A BIT OF SUCCESS. THEY’RE

VERY PHYSICAL, AND IF YOU’RE NOT CAREFUL–THEY

DO A GREAT JOB OF BREAKING THE HUDDLE REAL

MISALIGNED.”
