MEIGS COUNTY TIGERS (7-0, 2-0) ONEIDA IN­DI­ANS (5-2, 2-1) AT

Chattanooga Times Free Press - - WEEKEND BLITZ -

Sto­ry­line: The Tigers can se­cure the Re­gion 2-2A ti­tle with a win over the In­di­ans, who have lost their past two games. Sopho­more QB/DB Aaron Swaf­ford is fol­low­ing up an all-state fresh­man de­but with an even stronger 2017 sea­son. He ranks among the area’s lead­ers in both pass­ing and rush­ing, hav­ing com­piled more than 1,600 yards of to­tal of­fense, and is also among the lead­ers in in­ter­cep­tions on de­fense — he has re­turned two for TDs that cov­ered 74 and 100 yards. Ju­nior RB Martin Smith has emerged as a sec­ondary weapon on of­fense. LB Jawan Martin leads the Meigs de­fense, which has al­lowed more than 20 points just once this year, with 80 tack­les to go with three in­ter­cep­tions. He has also blocked two punts, re­turn­ing both for TDs. Dal­ton Baker has more than 50 tack­les and is among the area lead­ers with 12 for loss and seven sacks. Oneida typ­i­cally runs an old-school power run­ning game be­hind OT Lo­gan Stephens (6-4, 300) out of the I for­ma­tion. Stephens also an­chors the DL and has sev­eral schol­ar­ship of­fers from Foot­ball Cham­pi­onship Sub­di­vi­sion pro­grams. Se­nior TB Evan Roberts (6-0, 205) gets most of the car­ries, with FB Toby Hacker (5-10, 210) also counted on.
