Tigers now travel to Etowah Co.
According to Mike Smith, the Tigers and the Etowah Blue Devils could trade jerseys before the game and no one would know the difference.
"They (Etowah) are a lot like us," the head coach said. "They like to move around and stunt on defense. Offensively they're very similar. Their philosophy is they like to run the football and throw occasionally."
Smith's Tigers travel to Etowah County (7-3) Friday night for a Class 5A playoffs second round showdown.
