Canton Tigers

The Canton Tigers are coming off a season in which they won more games (two) than they have in the previous three years combined (one). Coach Jeremy Brashears and the team may have only gotten two wins in his debut season, but in four other games the Tigers were within a touchdown of their opponents at some point in the second half.

The point is, the Tigers did what they set out to do in Brashears’ first season, and that is compete. Now, in year two of the system, the Tigers are setting a new standard moving forward.

“Win,” stated Brashears. “I told these boys, there is no other acceptable outcome than winning. We’ve gone through that opening season. We have changed the culture. We are miles down that road from where we started when I got here. We are done with moral victories. We are tired of setting little goals like finishing games or collecting one more first down then last time. The kids are tired of it. They expect to win.”
