Biggest Game Since 2009

Emily Shumaker, Sports Editor

Following a long 12 years, Paducah Tilghman football is headed to the 3A state championship. After the third week of being on the road, Tilghman knocked off number two Glasgow 39-20 in the state semifinals to advance to their first state title game since 2009. Because of their hard work and dedication, Paducah Tilghman has pulled off three straight upsets (Union County, Christian Academy and Glasgow) to reach the state finals. They will now be playing Belfry Highschool for a chance at the state title.

Tilghman is entering the state championship with many strong players. Led by Brian Thomas, who made 52 grabs for 955 yards and 12 scores, our Paducah Tilghman team will be hard to stop. Camdon Marshall also had 502 yards and 9 td receptions and Lebran McMullen has added 434 yards and 4 scores. Malachi Rider on offensive attack has also had a great season with 1,170 yards and 13 scores.

The two teams will kick off the game on Sat., Dec. 4 at noon, on Kroger field. Be sure to come and support our Blue Tornado!
