2010 Team Preview: Oakville Tigers

Oakville Tigers look go gain experience to match their talent level by districts

Team Name: Oakville Tigers

Head Coach: Arlee Conners

2009 Record: 9 wins 4 losses

Post-Season Play: state semi-finalists

Arlee Conners Tigers enter a new era after relying on the big arm of Joe Plassmeyer for the past couple of years. Pleassmeyer has moved on ,but the Tigers will have a super athletic QB taking his place in Javon Henderson. This should give the Tigers a bit of a different look and option at times.

Running back Derrion Moore does return after rushing for close to 1,000 yards and 8 touchdowns. He will run behind a big fullback in Amblessed Oparaji and a massive offensive line featuring four juniors and led by senior center Joe Lamping.

Jaron Henderson gives his brother a big target at wide receiver.

Defensively they will be led by all-conference cornerback Lavell Benford, DE Eric Simon and DT Dwayne Mason.

The Tigers will be young but should gain the experience needed to compete in their district when the time comes.

Coaches team overview and outlook for 2010?

Young team, that possess a lot of talent. I expect them to make some mistakes early, but end up being pretty good by the end of the season.
