Senior Quarterback, Gary Johnston, ran in UWA’S second touchdown in third quarter and Reggie Hall ran in a thirty-one yard touchdown near the end of the fourth quarter.
Kicker Mark Grant was three-for-three for all of his field goal kicks.
Unfortunately, long snapper Matt Humphries suffered a few broken ribs and an ACL tear. Even though he is done for the season, Humphries isn’t allowing his injury to keep him down or lose faith in his team. He sent out a tweet thanking the fans and his teammates for the caring response to his injuries “I’ll bounce back from this no worries. Thanks for the support from my awesome teammates. Much love y’all. #AIE”
AIE stands for “Attitude is Everything,” which is a motto Coach Hall and the rest of the coaching staff are sure to drive home to the UWA Tigers. The Tigers use this motto in life and for football. They may have suffered a loss and an injured player, but they will come back with a positive and determined attitude to continue on their journey to the ring.
UWA will push their efforts as a team to the fullest as they take on Western Georgia this upcoming Saturday at Tiger Stadium at 6 p.m. Be sure to pack the stands and support the Tigers as they play their last few games of season, which will determine their chances for the playoffs.
