The Ringgold Tigers lost a good amount of skill players to graduation. Their pass heavy offense in 2018 is no more and they're looking to make up ground this season.

Speaking of ground, that's going to be a main focus of the Tigers attack. Head coach Robert Akins wants to run the ball as much as he can and utilize their big men up front to wear teams down.

The Tigers have some competition at the quarterback position this season in what senior center and UTC commit Reid Williams describes as a battle between some duel-threat athletes.

The Tigers believe if they can be the toughest team on the field and be physical up front, the rest will take care of itself.

Ringgold hosts Ridgeland for a scrimmage on Thursday, August 15th before opening up on the road at Dalton on Friday, August 23rd.
