The Bradwell Tigers look to overcome a sluggish start to their football season when they face the Coffee County Trojans at 7:30 tonight at Olvey field.  
The 0-2 Tigers continue to enhance their offense but a win would help improve players’ morale as they move into regional action next week against Beach. That game will be followed by five, back-to-back regional games each week.
The improving offense will rely on the steady hands of quarterback Josh Magaw as well as the receiving hands of Ronald Joseph, Manual Crum, Leroy Rock, Jonathan Lopez and Demario Day.
The Tigers once relied primarily on the running game, comprised of a variation of the Wing-T formation but recently opened up the pass attack. Head coach Jim Walsh said his team has been playing very physical and said it was the best improvement on offense he has seen in some time.
The last two losses for the Tigers came primarily from miscues and penalties, something that Walsh said the Tigers have worked on correcting all week in practice.
Defensively, the Tigers are strong in holding opponents to low scores and defensive coordinator Jeff Miller is working to build unity among the players who will have to hold back a strong offense.
The Tigers were 5-6 overall and 5-2 in the region for the 2006 season. Throughout the Tigers’ history, they have accumulated one state championship and 10 region titles. The 2005 season was the first time the Tigers failed to make the playoffs.
The Coffee County Trojans come into tonight’s game with a 2-0 record. The Trojans have won three region championships in the past six seasons and, last year, the Trojans demolished the Tigers with an impressive shutout, 34-0.
