The Brahmas and the Tigers will tussle in a battle of district supremacy, which pits Paul Pewitt's run-heavy attack against Daingerfield's Spread offense.

"Year in and year out, Daingerfield always has great athletes," Brahma head coach Cedric Dorsey said. "We will have to come prepared, because they will always put up a fight.

"We will have to protect the football and make sure we play hard in all four quarters."

Running back James Byrd rushed for 201 yards on 24 carries and two touchdowns for Paul Pewitt in last week's 36-21 victory over DeKalb.

"We are a team and we have been playing all on the same page," Dorsey said. "We pride ourselves on being physical and flying to the football. The kids are focused and are ready to play."
