The Moss Point Tigers enter Friday's showdown having posted 4 consecutive victories, 3 and 0 in the Region 4-5A standings, tied with high-powered Picayune. After losing the first two games of the season, Kevin Jackson said his Tigers have turned it around in positive way, thanks to a solid group of seniors.
Coach Jackson said, 'They're just a group that really believes in themselves and they've been together for a long period of time and worked hard and things are starting to come together for them."
Senior quarterback Anthony Mitchell on the right and his twin-brother Antwan on the left, have helped Moss Point's passing offense click.
Anthony Mitchell stated, "It's been real good. We've got that special chemistry that we've been having since we were a baby. It's been working out for us on the field."
Antwan Mitchell said, "When we get on the field we know what to do and not to do. I can give him a look and he give me a look and I know the route on what he wants me to do. He knows I can go up and get the ball on the field."
Coach Jackson added, "Both of those guys are seniors and three year lettermen at Moss Point. Anthony has had time at quarterback the last three years playing for Joe Kirkland during his injuries and has really stepped up to the plate this year and being the leader that we need on and off the field and really been affective as quarterback."@
185 pound senior Khadarius Fuller can bang through defensive line with speed and power and he's a receiving threat coming out of the backfield.@
If the Tigers need a big defensive play, Lige Mims is ready to deliver. He's a stellar defensive back.
200 pound linebacker Akevion Cunningham adds another weapon on defense, able to pop the opposition.
The Tigers will have to be at the top of their game, to have a chance at upsetting Picayune.
Last season at Dantzler Stadium Moss Point beat the Maroon Tide.
