The T.R. Miller Tigers have improved a lot in the eyes of head coach Jamie Riggs from their season opening loss to Clarke County.
While the 5-4 record his team shows may be different than what most people expect for a T.R. Miller team, a win this week will guarantee the Tigers a winning season, Riggs said that would satisfy him.
One of those close games for T.R. Miller (5-4 overall, 4-3 class 4A region 1) is this past Friday night's loss to archrival W.S. Neal. The Tigers fell 14-8 in overtime to the Eagles, their second straight loss at the hands of W.S. Neal.
Miller will look to get back on the winning track this week when they take on a good Trinity Presbyterian Wildcat team in Montgomery.
Trinity (6-3 overall, 6-1 class 4A region 2) is coming off a 49-24 victory over winless Bullock County Friday night.
Trinity has scored 245 points on the season for an average of 27.2 points a game and given up 143 points for a 15.9 average.
T.R. Miller has scored 203 points on the season for an average of 22.5 points and has given up 178 points for a 19.7 average.
Trinity will bring another spread offense against Miller and Riggs expects the Wildcats to throw the ball 40-45 times in the game.
Quarterback Whit Mitchell leads Trinity on offense and Riggs expects the ball to be in the air a lot.
Game time is scheduled for 7 p.m. in Montgomery at Boykin Field.
