Mike Says: Tenaha has rushed for 1076 yards this season averaging 10.45 yards per carry as a team. QB Reginald Davis (327 passing, 396 rushing) and RB Chavis Gregory (330 rushing) lead the offense. LB Dearron Roland (36 tackles) and Gregory (25 tackles), DL Jose Campos (3 sacks) and DB Tavi Griffith (2 INTs) head up their defense. Garrison is another running team having rushed for 871 yards led by RB Nathan Burkhalter (369 yards 8.58 avg). The Bulldog defense is led by LB Tucker Stokes (29 tackles), DL Russell Carrell (17 tackles), DL Logan Clark (2 sacks) and DB Cameron Rodriguez (2 INTs). The key to victory and how many times do you hear this...be able to run the ball and be able to stop the run. Tenaha may not average their 10+ yards per carry but they will run it well enough. The TIGERS win 34-20!!

Chris Says: Most of the folks around the state give this one to Tenaha, but there are about 30% who thing Garrison can pull it off.  Garrison has a good squad and this is certainly a game that could turn a lot of heads if they pull off the win.  I don't see it happening though, Tenaha takes this one 24-17!!
