Chatter lights fire under Tenaha for undefeated matchup against Overton


Tenaha is set to face Overton on Friday. The Tigers have yet to lose a game all year, while the Mustangs are undefeated in their district season.

Complete domination is the only appropriate way to describe this year's Tiger team.

They've outscored opponents 389 points to a dismal 30 points. That's because they've recorded five shutouts in their eight games, and the most points they've ever allowed is 12.

Overton can also put points on the boards. They average over 41 points a game, but have allowed over 21 points on average.

This potential district title game has already sparked some chatter and it's gotten back to the Tigers, which may make them bite just that much harder.

“They got a couple really good players and they've been talking all this and that all week. It's just a big game for us. We got posters and stuff up there in the locker room and it says everything they've been saying. It gets us hyped up,” said Tenaha quarterback CJ Horn.

“It makes us a little more intense, it pumps us up a lot, it makes us want to play harder and makes us want to beat them more,” said Tenaha linebacker Tavoris Giles. “I don't know if they're going to play physical or not, but we're sure going to play physical.”

Tenaha will travel to Overton for this contest. Game starts at 7 p.m.
