Big Rapids High School
Grant High School
Your Grant Tigers hosted the Big Rapids Cardinals on Thursday August 31st. Grant took the opening kickoff and drove 77 yards in 16 plays for a touchdown. The drive was capped by a 1 yard run by Jared Evans behind an incredible surge by the offensive line. Tyler Naffzinger’s extra point attempt was good, which gave Grant a 7-0 lead.
On Grants next possession Trent Throop connected with Josh Wright on a 10 yard touchdown pass ( Naffzinger PAT was good) which gave the Tigers a 14-0 lead at halftime.
After a scoreless third quarter, the Tigers scored on a 1 yard run in the 4th quarter by Jared Evans ( Naffzinger PAT good) to give Grant a 21-0 lead. Big Rapids scored in the 4th to round out the scoring, Grant 21- Big Rapids 7.
A huge “shout out” to the offensive line for controlling the line of scrimmage and allowing for over 200 yards rushing by the Tigers. An even louder “shout out” to the defensive staff and players for their performance during the first two games. Your Tiger Defense has allowed a total of 7 points over two football games!
Next week the Tigers take on the Hornets of Central Montcalm, at CM. Hope to see tons of Tiger fans in the stands!
