Team Notes

As mentioned, last weeks dominant trio in Isaac Rellinger, Brock Titus and Will Kiker, were nonexistent in this one. Kiker somehow managed over 100 all purpose yards and was perhaps the brightest light for Gilmer this week. Rellinger struggled going 1-4 in the air for just 21 yards and one INT and was shutdown in the run game picking up 20 yards on 10 carries. After a big game last week, Titus was only able to rack up 34 yards on 10 carries and was the leading rusher for Gilmer. Kiker did make his presence felt on defense as he led the team in tackles and senior Kendall Sanders picked up the only Bobcats sack in this one and was able to amount 5 total tackles. However, despite their performances, the Tigers balanced offensive attack rolled right through the Bobcats.

Ringgold had 191 yards in the air and another 169 yards on the ground for 360 total yards as they outgained Gilmer by 242 yards. The defense was awesome as they shutdown the big Gilmer rushing game. Neither Maxpreps nor Hudl had individual stats posted for the Ringgold Tigers.

Look Ahead

Gilmer will head into their Bye Week after a very successful non-region performance going 3-1 with a +42-point differential in those 4 games. After their Bye, they will begin region play as the host the Wesleyan Wolves (1-3). As for the Ringgold Tigers, they will travel to Lafayette to take on the 1-2 Lafayette Ramblers.

It was the Will Kiker/Brock Titus show for the Bobcats on Friday night as Gilmer beat Murray County 36-0. Will Kiker dominated on both sides of the ball as he led the team in tackles while also totaling three rushing touchdowns. Gilmer’s defense was incredible in this one as the Bobcats now sit at 3-0 on the season. North Murray struggled on offense as they were held to just 6 yards of offense, according to Maxpreps. 

Team Notes

Aside from Kiker, Brock Titus and Hunter Watkins also had big games as Titus ran for 77 yards and 2 TDs on 13 attempts while Watkins added 89 yards on 3 rushing attempts and brought in QB Isaac Rellinger’s only pass for 22 yards. Rellinger however struggled with ball security in this one as he fumbled the ball away three times. 


Despite forcing 4 fumbles, the Indians were unable to find any momentum on offense and failed to put up any points. Neither Maxpreps nor Hudl had individual stats posted for Murray County.

Look Ahead

Gilmer will travel to Ringgold to take on the Tigers who have yet to pick up a win on the season and carry a -27-point differential on the season. As for Murray County they will hope to get the offense figured out over the Bye Week before they host the 0-2, Chattanooga Indians.
