Tunstall Football - ABC 13 Team of the Week
Dry Fork - This week's high school Team of the Week is Tunstall Trojans football. Tunstall won its first region football championship in history last Friday night, holding off Cave Spring 19-15. Now the 8-and-3 Trojans, enjoying their first winning season since 2003, advance to this Saturday's state semifinals at undefeated Brookville. Tunstall has won seven of its last eight, but the Trojans know they'll have to play their best to upset the Bees. The Trojans have surprised several teams, they'll try and keep it up Saturday at 1 at Brookville.
Buddy Brown, TUNSTALL TROJANS FOOTBALL COACH, said "We play extremely hard, we're not overly big. But like I said the kids like each other, they play hard for each other, they play hard for their coaches, they're responsible kids and they've learned to win. And that's big."
Evan Huffman, TROJANS SENIOR RECEIVER/FREE SAFETY, said "We're just a scrappy bunch, we get after it every play. A lot of coaches have complimented us on the defensive end, how hard we get after it. And that's just how we make our living."
Brad Hylton, TUNSTALL JUNIOR LINEBACKER/TIGHT END, said "We have to have as least amount of mistakes as possible and we have to get pressure on BeCraft."
BeCraft is Brookville's starting quarterback, senior Kendall BeCraft.
