(ROCKDALE)–THE ROCKDALE TIGER FOOTBALL TEAM

IS PREPARED FOR THEIR FINAL SCRIMMAGE OF THE

PRESEASON. THE TIGERS HOST MEXIA IN SCRIMMAGE

ACTION TONIGHT.

THE BLACKCATS PRESENT A CHALLENGE, AS THEY

RETURN 2 STARTERS ON OFFENSE AND 7 ON DEFENSE FOR

THIS SEASON’S RUN IN CLASS 4-A DIVISION 2. MEXIA IS

IN DISTRICT 8, WHICH INCLUDES WACO CONNALLY, LORENA,

FAIRFIELD, ROBINSON, SALADO, AND MADISONVILLE.

THE TIGERS HAVE THEIR FINAL WARM-UP

OPPORTUNITY BEFORE THEY OPEN THE REGULAR SEASON

AT HOME AGAINST GIDDINGS AT THE NEW TIGER FIELD.

THE TIGERS OUTSCORED GROESBECK 4 TO 2 IN THE FIRST

SCRIMMAGE LAST FRIDAY.

THE TIGERS LOOK TO MAKE FINAL TUNE-UPS BEFORE

OPENING THE SEASON AGAINST GIDDINGS.

ROCKDALE TIGER HEAD COACH JEFF MILLER SAYS

THIS 2ND SCRIMMAGE WILL BE IMPORTANT IN DETERMINING

SOME POSITIONS…

“SCRIMMAGES ARE SO BIG BECAUSE WE NEED TO

EVALUATE SO MANY PEOPLE, STILL. WE HAVE A LOT OF

POSITIONS THAT ARE STILL OPEN. AND SO, IT’S GOING TO

BE ONE MORE OPPORTUNITY FOR SOME OF THOSE KIDS

TO EITHER MAKE OR BREAK, YOU KNOW, SEPARATE

THEMSELVES.”

MILLER ALSO SAYS THE 2ND SCRIMMAGE WILL BE

ENTIRELY DIFFERENT BECAUSE MEXIA PLAYS AT A

DIFFERENT LEVEL…

“MEXIA’S A WHOLE DIFFERENT STORY, NOW.

MEXIA’S GOING TO BE A PRETTY DANG GOOD FOOTBALL

TEAM. SO, WE’RE REALLY GOING TO HAVE TO EXECUTE

AT A REALLY HIGH LEVEL TO BE ABLE TO GET OUT THERE

AND COMPETE WITH THEM.”
