Impact Player: Carson Dunn is one of the state’s toughest runners.  Through 10 games in 2021, Dunn rushed for 734 yards and caught an additional 173 for 10 total touchdowns. He currently holds just one scholarship offer from Indiana State.

Breakout Candidate: DE Brady Wolfe could be a name to watch for the Tigers in 2022. Wolf finished the 2020 season with 25 total tackles, 4 sacks and even an interception return for a touchdown.

Season Outlook: After a 3-8 season in his first year as head coach, Curt Funk doubled the win total, leading the Tigers to a 6-4 record before losing in the sectional to Hamilton County nemesis Hamilton Southeastern.  The good news is the Tigers return plenty of starters who should be able to get the job done in 2022.

“Our team chemistry is in a great place, our coaching staff understands each of our unique talents,” Dunn says.  “We have the right combination of character, experience and talent that’s need to make a run at the state championship.”

Dunn said he is working on “everything” to better himself and the team ahead of the upcoming season.

“As a team captain my job is to set the example,” Dunn said.  “I know that I have to work harder than everyone else, each and every day, getting better on all phases of my game and setting the tone for my teammates.”

Joe Syrus, whose brother Will played for the Tigers and later Hillsdale, said winning the conference has been a huge goal for the team over the past couple of years.

“The work we have been putting in should translate to the field,” Syrus said.  “I think our team can reach a state title by playing together.  The more we trust each other and play our roles, the better chance we have to go far in the playoffs.  Trusting our great coaching staff is another factor to success.  The area I’m most working on is my game IQ.  The smarter I am with knowing the coverages and breaking them (down), the more I can get open and get opportunities to score.  I have also been hitting the weight room and getting stronger and faster to play at my best for the upcoming season.”

The Tigers open on the road against North Central on August 19 before facing Pike at home on August 26.
