TIGERS

Cecil Whig - - & -

Ris­ing Sun has al­ready scrim­maged last year’s 3A and 4A state cham­pi­ons— North­ern High School (Calvert County) and North­west High School (Mont­gomery County), re­spec­tively. The Tigers will also square off against pri­vateschool power Our Lady of Good Coun­sel (Mont­gomery County), and Delaware Mil­i­tary Academy, an un­de­feated state cham­pi­onship team last sea­son.

“DMA gave us our only loss last sea­son, so that is the game of the year for us,” Wil­son

said. “So, be­fore we have any of the con­fer­ence matches, we will be pretty well vet­ted by some top-flight com­pe­ti­tion.”

With so much fire­power com­ing back from an al­ready­dom­i­nant team, the ex­pec­ta­tions are sky high.

“I think ev­ery­body ex­pects an­other state cham­pi­onship,” he said. “We don’t fo­cus on that, but it’s in the back of ev­ery­body’s mind. We are at a level that I don’t think I’ve ever coached at be­fore. You are go­ing to see us do things that we have never done in my 17 years here.”

For a coach with 10 re­gion ti­tles and three state ti­tles un­der his belt, that is re­ally say­ing some­thing.
