Playoffs On The Line Friday Night
Friday night's game against
Mabank will mark the most important game of the year to date for the Tigers
because with a win Corsicana will grab a playoff spot for Coach Henigan in
his first year as a head coach. Standing in the way of the Tigers
playoff ambitions are the Mabank Panthers. Though it comes as no
surprise to Tiger fans that their team is playing for the postseason, some
will be surprised to know that Mabank is also playing for the playoffs after
their 42-14 win over Athens last week. If Mabank can win 2 of their
final 3 games they'll head to the playoffs which should make the game an
Mabank comes into the game
with a world of confidence after last week's win. First year coach
Jimmy Cantrell has gotten the offense going despite losing their original
starting QB Tyler Hamilton to injury early in the year. The Panthers
have scored 38 or more points in all three of their victories. RB
Juston Richardson will lead the Mabank attack as he has rushed for 747 yards
and 7 touchdowns on the year. Donald Rightenour and Chance Johnson
will split the quarterbacking duties but they are very different players.
Rightenour has attempted 37 pass attempts while Johnson only 5.
On paper, the Mabank defense
would seem to be overmatched against a Tiger offense that welcomes back QB
Eric Gordon to the starting lineup this week. Gordon threw for 677
yards in four games before spraining his shoulder. One thing that
hasn't changed in his absence is that Jon Bauer will still be his top
target. Bauer is the DFW area's leading 4A receiver with 719 yards and
10 touchdowns on the season.
Come out to Tiger Field and
support the Tigers on Friday!!!
