Injuries have taken a toll on the Coahoma Early College Tigers, but head football coach Jeremiah Brassell hopes some of his key players can return soon. The team has shuffled personnel as all three running backs are banged up, although Chris Russell may be cleared to play Friday night. He says the Tigers need to get healthy to finish the season, describing this part of their schedule as “murderer’s row”. After blowout losses to North Panola and Palmer their opponent this week is the 7-and-1 Water Valley Blue Devils. Brassell calls them a “power team” and expects them to run straight at Coahoma Early College when the two schools meet at James Miller Stadium on Friday at 7PM.
