Coach: Brent Williamson.
Lettermen R/L: 8/5.
2009: 8-3 DI bi-district finalist/3-2 district.
Starters returning O/D: 3/2.
Key losses: Jon Poague, Kenneth Smith, Anthony Johnson.
Players to watch: QB Alex Casterena, S Hayden Hicks.
Top sophomores: RB Derek Jesko (6-0, 175), LB Jared Howard (5-11, 160).
2010 notes: QB Casterena and S Hicks both collected second team all-region honors last fall. Their talent, plus a drop from DI to DII, has this group very close to a playoff berth. And the desire to win has never been stronger for the Tigers - they'll probably have a chance to wrap up a playoff berth in Week 10 when they travel to Rising Star.
