6A--The bhdak~ff News, Thursday, Sept. 17, 1981 tough, Tigers" Tigers face Panthers ii:: ii Pl 'Ji So much for the Brownsburo Bean... The Tiga~ were about as close to awesome as you can probably I~ last Friday night in their 37-8 romp over their arch-rivals to the East. Almost all phases of the Tigers' game, with a couple of exceptions, were in high gear during the very satisfying rout. Offensively, the Tigers enjoyed their most successful outing in an een. Let's face it, 455 total yards is not a shabby night's work. What's even more ira- pressive is the route the Tigers took toward the high output. Gaining 275 rushing yards, the Ttgem added IS0 through the airways. When's the last time you remember a Tiger team passing for that many yards? The offensive success indicates the Tigers have zhade a smooth transition into their new Wishbone offense. It also means the consistency level is con- tinulug to improve. Consistency has been a key goal for Coach Dale Norris and the Tigers, as it is for any team, since two.a-days began. While the Tigers are not where they would probably llke to be yet, they are getting there. Before you take a look at the in- dividusl start and their numbers, once again let me remind you to not forget the men up front. The Tigers' huge front line dominated the trenches, providing the backs running room and quarterback Russell Tarver ample time to pass. Another area the linemen did a creditable Job is in the downfield blocking area. Whether it was a run- ning play or the screen and swing passes,~ after their initial block onthe line of scrimmage the unsung heroos headed downfield for more blooking duties. James Jackson, Vie Kirkland and Tarver stole the offensive spotlight against the Bean. Jackson, playing with a couple of nagging injuries, rushed for 75 Stills on Just five carries. That's an pverage of 15 yards a carry, football fans. The senior halfback also had an incredible III yards on two pass receptions.

The Tiger defense garnered its share of the headlines against the Bears, holding the pass-oriented team to a mere 15 yards rushing and 92 passing. Several playes turned in solid efforts on the defensive unit. Nice guard Billy Whlteley once again headed the llst along with Ron Denis, Joe Campana, Harold Holyfield and Kyle KiL~n. The Tiger secondary also deserves a giant ~t on the back. The Bears threw the II 30 times, completing oRly nine against the unit.

Blanton carried the mail 20 times enroute to his many yards. Quarterback Tom Chap- man and Ollie Watson also provided yards via the ground as the Panthers totaled 224 yards. Chapman added an additional 24 yards through the friendly skies. Defensively, the Panthers rely on agressive play from the defensive front. Mabank's pass rush has forced Panther foes into several interceptions during the young season. When Panther opponents gamble and go to the air Tyson Johnson and John Whitman are there to intercept the aerials. The op- portunistic Mabank defense also recovered two Ferris fumbles and limited the Yellowjackets to just 52 ,ards rushing and seven first downs.
