Tigerhawks tune up for season in scrimmage with Hawks
With the start of the regular season just one week from commencing, Week 0 is an opportunity for local football teams and their players to get back into the swing of things with some live-game action. Perennial Class A District 6 contenders Lynnville-Sully hosted the visiting Tigerhawks of Colfax-Mingo on Friday night, Aug. 23, for some tune-up football in the form of a scrimmage.
The scrimmages don’t count toward the season, and the schools don’t even keep score, but judging by the sea of vehicles lining the Sully streets, it’s clear that the fervor for football has already returned. Although the games don’t count yet, both coaches saw this as a useful opportunity to work through some kinks on both sides of the ball.
“I think we’re about 75 percent of the way there,” Tigerhawks’ first-year coach Jeff Lietz said. “We found out some areas we needed to tighten up. They’re a heck of a football team, so that was a good chance for our guys to see where they are.”
