(Continued)

Carroll opens at home tonight against Tri-County.

Chapter heds:Peru

The Peru Tigers made progress in the second year of head coach Bob Prescott with a 3-7, 2-5 MIC record last year after going 0-10 in 2011. Now the Tigers will like to see more of wins this season, but they are taking it one step at a time.

“We are making progress [this year],” Prescott said. “Our guys are getting better every time we step on the field. We want to [always] make sure that we are getting better.”

In order to get better, Prescott wants to work on the Tigers first, before concentrating on the upcoming opponent.

“We will focus on us,” Prescott added. “Our goal is to see improvement. We can’t control who we play.”

Prescott will be looking to the services of juniors quarterback Nolan Brimbury (4-17-2 for 71 yards), running back Michael Richardson (45-225, 2 TDs) and senior linebacker (88 solo tackles, 20 assisted, 3 tackles for loss). Other returning players are seniors Eddie Childers (linebacker), Eli Brubaker (tight end), Nick Cress (center) and Kegan Kern (running back) and junior Tristan Bragg (tackle).

Other players looking to see more action are seniors Steven McBride (fullback), Andrew Maynard (linebacker) and Mitch Johnson (cornerback), junior Gordo Maldonado (wide receiver), sophomores Peyton Sturgill (free safety) and Mitchell Townsend (guard).

Prescott will also like to become a top team in the MIC, but that will come with time.

“The conference has winning teams every year, and we have to climb our way up to the top,” Prescott said.

As for the sectional, Peru enters a new era with the six class system. The Tigers still remain in Class 3A, but with only one common opponent in Maconaquah in Sectional 26. Others joining the sectional are Culver Military Academy, Fairfield, Jimtown, Rochester, Tippecanoe Valley and Twin Lakes.

Peru scrimmaged Twin Lakes last Friday. The Tigers open the season hosting Wabash this Friday.
