Region title is in Carver's grasp

Playing in big games is nothing new for the Carver Tigers. They seem to do it every year. But the Tigers really buckle down during Peach County week.

"This game, people are more focused on than they were last week. This is a serious game. This is region championship. We really got the team really into it," said Carver running back Dequindre Coleman.

Carver coach Joe Kegler will be in his first Peach County game as the big man on the sidelines. He knows what a challenge they bring.

"They do everything well. We're going to need the whole team to step up. From the scout team showing us a look through the week to every player and every position throughout the game having to step up and try to find a way to win a home game," Kegler said.

The Tigers are hitting hard in practice because they know what is on the line.

"But, you know what is coming with it. We win the region championship. And it is a big game. Everybody wants to play in a big game. You never want to lose a big game," said Carver Linebacker Tim Whatley.

Carver had leaned on an experienced defense throughout this season while the youthful offense grows as a unit. The whole team knows a win Friday could be only the start of their dreams.

"It's going to feel like a dream come true for me. This is the biggest team I've played. It's going to feel like a dream come true," Coleman said.

"Basically, from here on out it is win or go home. You win and you advance. We are trying to treat every game from here on out like it is the playoffs," Kegler said.
