Garrison ready for match-up with Tenaha


One of the best games in East Texas on Friday will be in Garrison when the Bulldogs take on number one Tenaha. This is the fourth straight year the two schools, which are just 17 miles apart, will meet.

After taking down the Tigers in 2010, Garrison has lost the last two meetings by a combined 13 points. The Bulldogs scored just six points against Tenaha last year, but are coming off a 48 to nothing shutout victory over Hemphill in week zero. Athlete Cameron Rodriguez and running back Logan Clark provide head coach Craig Barker with the firepower necessary to hang with talented Tenaha.

Barker said, "This is a big week for us and all I had to say was it's Tenaha week and we all kind of locked in and focused a little bit more and we are definitely ready for the challenge. We'll have to make sure we are sound in our fundamentals and we are where we are suppose to be and break down and be able to make plays." Clark added," A lot of us know people in Tenaha so we kind of get to talk crap to each other and get in each other's head. We know they have 4 main players, I mean their two running backs, quarterback and receiver. I mean if we get their run game stopped, we have one receiver to stop then."
