Storied Program Next For Tigers

Saturday night the Tigers will take on one of the most storied programs in Texas history when they travel to Waco ISD stadium to play the Brownwood Lions.  Brownwood, along with Corsicana, is one of only seven teams to have won 600 games in the history of their program.

The Lions come into the game off of a thrilling 34-33 win over Midlothian in the first round of the playoffs.  Trailing 33-21 going into the fourth quarter Brownwood made a terrific rally and got the win to move on.  The Lions are led by their super tailback Jamal Organ who ran for 180 yards last week and has 1570 yards on the season.  The Tigers are no strangers to top notch tailbacks having faced Decory King last week and Terry Sampson of Lancaster earlier in the year but Organ could be the best the Tigers have seen all year.

Brownwood will mix it up on offense as sophomore QB Jarrett Lee has thrown for over 1500 yards this year.  Bart Johnson is the top receiving threat but the Lions will spread it around efficiently.  The Lions can put points on the board in a hurry as they have averaged almost 35 points per game in their last seven contests.

Britton Maxwell is the leader of the Brownwood defense having 139 tackles on the season.  The Lion defense struggled early in the year against a difficult non-district schedule but has really picked it up as the year as progressed.  Midlothian brought a potent offense into last week's game and when they had to Brownwood shut them down in the fourth quarter.

This should be a great game between two great programs.  The Lions are on a roll having won 6 of their last 7 games and have a lot of momentum going into Saturday.  Come out Saturday to support the Tigers!!!
