Heroics propel Tigers to upset

The Rockwood Tigers upset the 2A No. 1 Meigs County Tigers Friday night in Decatur, 9-8, with a late touchdown in the third round of the TSSAA 2A Football Playoffs.

“These kids have done everything I’ve asked them to do for a long, long time,” Rockwood Coach John Webb said. “You know when just when people think it’s over and we’re ready to start putting uniforms up, they come back out with something else.”
