Head coach Pete Cavanagh talked about how Mid-Prairie has not seen Tipton in football for a few years, and the surprise of them being 4-0.
“We haven’t played them in football for a few years, of course their in our conference for basketball and other sports so we are somewhat familiar with the personell, but haven’t played them in football,” Cavanagh said. “When we originally saw Tipton on the schedule we thought, ‘Well this is a team that has struggled last year,’ but now here we are 4-0 halfway through the season.”
