To make school history tonight.
The tigers were looking to beat greenback to advance to their first ever state championship game.
They say don't believe everything you read but whitwell is sure hoping this sign is accurate... the game looked like a defensive battle early then the big plays started josh wingo popped this big run but don't strike up the band just yet he runs out of gas just before the endzone hudson petty would take the snap and cap off the drive for the touchdown to give the tigers a 7 to nothing lead greenbeck would answer back ... jalen mccord is going to the left wait make that the right and that takes him into the enzone to knot the game at 7 while greenback was taking short gains to move down the field whitwell was geting chunk plays there goes josh wingo again in the open field but looks like he runs out of gas again and gets caught from behind.
Just like the first scoring sequence wingo gets them there and petty takes it in .... hudson petty's second touchdown of the game made it 13 to 7 whitwell got a field goal in the closing seconds to win it 24-21.
They'll play cornersville for the 1-a state crown next saturday in cookeville.
