“We wanted to get the experience of playing schools who play outside our state. Being able to play teams from Georgia, Arkansas, and Alabama resulted in a lot of growth for our Tribe. We know our best football is ahead of us. We’re looking forward to finishing Region play strong and that starts with the best Saturday of review and preparation we have ever had. One day at a time. Again and Again and Again.” Trent Dilfer head coach.
Lipscomb Academy and CPA face off in a clash of the best schools in the state Friday, October 22, 2021, at 7:30pm at Lipscomb Academy.
