OFFENSE

The 11th highest scoring offense in Class A last season, the Tigers return eight starters from the squad. A balanced attack that doesn’t focus on just the run or pass, Mangum will look to improve upon last season’s third place finish in District A-2. Running back Brett Perry (5-10, 190, Sr.) does more than just run after 1,502 all-purpose yards last season to go with 15 touchdowns. Colton Laughlin (6-4, 180, Jr.) returns at quarterback after throwing for 2,000 yards on 52-percent passing with 25 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Laughlin is a capable runner as well averaging 4.14 yards per carry last season. Look to see the junior improvethis year. He’ll benefit from receiver Jalen Warner returning after he averaged 17.9 yards per reception and pulling in 12 touchdowns. Split end Henery Lopez (5-9, 145, Sr.) is back after pulling in 37 catches for an average of 15.5 yards and six total touchdowns. At fullback, Shon Booth (6-0, 210, Sr.) is a hammering back totaling 13 touchdowns on 139 carries averaging 5.3 yards per touch. Nothing will get going without solid play from Pacen Jenkins (6-1, 180, Jr.) at center, tackle Garrett Shaw (6-3, 207, Jr.) and the rest of the offensive line.

DEFENSE

The defense will be aggressive and use team speed as 10 starters return in 2018. Led by Rodney Hunter (5-8, 150, Jr.) in the defensive backfield was a force with five interceptions and 67 total tackles. Joining him in the backfield will be Trey Dickey (5-7, 140, So.) who saw playing time as a freshman. Along the defensive line the coaching staff will rely upon Daelin Stacy (6-2, 180, Jr.) at defensive while Jason Shandy (6-3, 235, Sr.) and J.J. Skinner (5-8, 240, Sr.) will man the middle tackle positions. For the Tigers to move up in the district standings it will be the play of the defense that will prove most important. Things looking promising for the Tigers and head coach William Dickey, Sr. who takes over as head coach after spending last season as an assistant.
