The High School Football season is about to end for the Mitchell Tigers...and that's a GOOD thing.
Mitchell is preparing for the Tennessee Class 3-A- State Championship game.
The Tigers started the season 0-and-4, but rallied to finish the season 9-and-5, rolling through the playoffs to the Title game.
Head Coach Nathan Cole says:
"Some of these guys, it's a dream come true to go to State..especially the Seniors. They feel it's their year."
Adds Wide Receiver Keiwone Malone:
"Only thing we've been thinking about from Day 1 is State.. And now it's here."
Leave it to Offensive Tackle Rodriqus Scruggs to sum it all up.
"We've got to bring that Gold Ball back to Memphis, where it belongs."
Mitchell will play unbeaten Knoxville Catholic for the State Title.
Kickoff is Saturday, 12-Noon, at Middle Tennessee State in Murfreesboro.
