It's week two and already someone's '0' has to go.
Seminole is coming off a 39-7 victory over Harrah at home last week and heads to Tecumseh determined to keep the momentum going.
Tecumseh's 38-35 victory over Bethel was close. The Savages trailed in the second half against Bethel, but thanks to a two-headed monster in the backfield that combined for 248 yards and four touchdowns, mixed with a defense that recorded eight sacks, Tecumseh was able to get the job done.
With victory last week, Tecumseh coach Ty Bullock feels his team is ready to compete with the Chieftains.
“Seminole is one of the best football programs in the state,” Bullock said. “We have to match their intensity and our team is excited for the opportunity and we welcome the challenge this early in the season.”
In terms of yardage, the game features the area's six and seventh ranked quarterbacks. Seminole's Cade Hammond only attempted nine passes last week. He completed five of them for 116 yards and a two touchdowns. Will Hilton tossed the pigskin around for 144 yards and one touchdown.
The running backs in this game all have big-play ability. Seminole's backfield of Jamon Dennis and Cameron Gunville were responsible for 257 yards and four touchdowns. Tecumseh's backs went off to the tune of 248 yards and four scores.
Both teams have receivers that can score from anywhere on the field. Seminole's Chico Baker had one reception for 42 yards that went for six. Saybion Battles took one to the house from 34 yards out. Tecumseh's Dylan Morris caught four passes totaling 118 yards, including a long of 54 yards. Morris caught Tecumseh's only touchdown through the air last week.
Seminole forced one turnover in week one, recovering a Harrah fumble. Tecumseh's defense gave up 30-plus points but sacked the Bethel quarterback eight times last week.
Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 at Tecumseh.
