The Adairsville Tigers are extremely optimistic about their 2020 season . After a few years of taking their bumps and bruises with underclassmen or injuries, they feel that this is the time for all that they have learned along the way, combined with goals that they have set, to come to fruition.
Adairsville has a large returning senior class full of players who have had valuable playing experience throughout the years. The Tigers return three senior veteran offensive linemen in Dave Adams, James Ellerbee, and Mason Cash. Additionally, the Tiger offense returns starting senior QB Connor Crunkelton and seniors Courtney Slocum at slotback and Jamaury Johnson at tailback.
On the defensive side of the ball, three seniors will anchor the defensive line, all with playing experience off of last year’s playoff team. These seniors include Evan Smith, Ty’wun Gordon, and KJ Weaver. With a strong sophomore season last year, Toyko Gordon will anchor the linebacking core. Courtney Slocum and Jamaury Johnson look to also contribute on the defensive side in the secondary.
On special teams, senior Emmanuel Lopez will return as both punter and kicker, giving the Tigers an extra edge on that unit.
With all of the experience the Tigers have on the field in 2020, expect for them to make a run at a region championship and make some noise in the playoffs.
