DEMOPOLIS &8212; For both the Tigers and the Wolves, their first possessions looked promising: each yielded a touchdown, with Demopolis opting successfully for two points. With 11 and a half minutes still left to play in the first quarter, Demopolis held the lead with a score of 8-7.

After this initial momentum, however, the Demopolis defense could not hold back the Vigor offense, which went on to score 20 unanswered points in the first half of the game.

Burton Scott &8212; the double threat Vigor quarterback who has already committed to play at University of Alabama next year &8212; walked away with 115 of the team&8217;s 356 total yards and two touchdowns for the Wolves.

In the second half of the game, the Tiger defense was able to shut down the Vigor offense, but the team was unable to gain any momentum on the offensive side.

The leading tacklers were Anthony Wilson with six tackles, Michael Davis with five tackles and Antwon Nelson with five tackles.

Both teams suffered from mistakes, Demopolis lost 55 yards and Vigor lost 62.5 yards to penalties.

Causey said he is most proud of the seniors, who were able to adapt to a new coaching program after having a successful career under other coaches for three years. The seniors this year walk away with a high school career of 44-6.

When asked about plans for the next year, Causey said the team has to focus on the little things and learn to play more consistently.
