The Tigers came out of the game looking as if everyone was ready.In a game controlled by the Tigers from the beginning, the black and gold looked sharp and very focused.Led by a rushing attack that averaged over eight yards per carry, DeKalb moved the football extremely well.The Tigers started the game with the football.
