(ROCKDALE)–THE ROCKDALE TIGERS TOOK PART IN

THEIR FIRST SCRIMMAGE OF THE SUMMER ON FRIDAY.

THE TIGERS MADE A SOLID SHOWING AT GIDDINGS, WHO

IS RANKED 5TH IN THE STATE BY DAVE CAMPBELL’S TEXAS

FOOTBALL IN CLASS 4-A DIVISION 2. ROCKDALE OUTSCORED

THE BUFFALOES 3 TO NOTHING IN THE SCRIMMAGE. ALL

THE SCORES CAME IN THE CONTROLLED PORTION OF THE

SCRIMMAGE.

THE TIGERS CONNECTED ON A 70 YARD TOUCHDOWN

PASS DOWN THE FIELD ON THE 2ND PLAY OF THE SCRIMMAGE.

ON THE FIRST PLAY OF THE TIGERS’ NEXT POSSESION, THEY

SCORED ANOTHER 70 YARD TOUCHDOWN PASS, THIS TIME ON

A SCREEN PASS. ANOTHER LONG ROCKDALE TOUCHDOWN

PASS CAME LATER IN THE SCRIMMAGE.

THE TIGER DEFENSE WAS CRISP THROUGHOUT THE

SCRIMMAGE. THE TIGER DEFENSE DID NOT ALLOW GIDDINGS

TO SCORE, AND HAD SEVERAL SACKS AND TACKLES FOR

LOSSES, ALONG WITH AN INTERCEPTION.

ROCKDALE TIGER HEAD COACH JEFF MILLER SAYS

THE TIGERS WANTED TO USE THE SCRIMMAGE FOR SPECIFIC

THINGS, AND IN THAT REGARD, IT’S MISSION ACCOMPLISHED…

“THE TWO THINGS WE WANTED TO SEE: WE WANTED

TO TRY TO SEE THE RUNNING GAME AND SOME OFFENSIVE

LINE, AND NOW WE KNOW WHAT WE HAVE TO WORK ON.

AND WE WANTED TO SEE OUR DEFENSE PLAY REALLY,

REALLY HARD, AND WITH A LOT OF AGGRESSION. AND

THEY DID. SO, WE REALLY GOT OUT OF IT WHAT WE WANTED

TO GET. PLUS–KNOCK ON WOOD–WE DIDN’T GET

ANYBODY BANGED UP.”

THE TIGERS HAVE ONE MORE SUMMER SCRIMMAGE

ON THE SCHEDULE. THEY WILL SCRIMMAGE MEXIA AT HOME

ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 24TH.
