After some struggling seasons, there seems to be some renewed enthusiasm for Bokoshe Tigers football.
The season for the Tigers will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday as they hit the road to face the Oaks Warriors.
“I can tell they're ready to play,” first-year Bokoshe coach Bryan Murray said. “They're wanting to go hit someone else. I can't see them not being up for this. They've really worked hard in the off-season and in practice. They're ready to prove to people that they're better. We're looking forward to Friday night.”
