Wiregrass Two-A-Days: Eufaula Tigers
EUFAULA, Ala. (WTVY) - The Eufaula Tigers and Ed Rigby are gearing up for another playoff run in 2020.
The Tigers became a quick contender in Class 6A last season, but saw their season cut short with an overtime loss in the playoffs against Hueytown.
Eufaula returns a plethora of talent including quarterback Hess Horne, who led Class 6A in passing last season and a number of guys for him to get the ball too.
A tough schedule awaits the tigers this season. Showdowns with Phenix City and Opelika in the first few weeks, but Rigby wants his guys ready to play the best.
"If you want to be the man you have to beat the man," said Rigby. "If we want to be great in Week 11, we're going to have to beat some good people along the way. It's biblical. Iron sharpens iron. If you play a bunch of cupcakes, you're going to be a cupcake. If you play a bunch of dogs, you're going to be a dog. It's that simple. The bottom line of it is I'm excited about it because it's a challenge."
Eufaula will open the 2020 season against the Carroll Eagles.
