No one could have predicted how week one went this past weekend with high temperatures and scattered thunderstorms ruining a great opening weekend of high school football in Kentucky.  Only one half was played by the Tiger Football team before they were given the victory due to cancellation of the remaining quarters.

Week two brings a tough opponent to the top of the Tigers’ most wanted list.  The Bryan Station Defenders are also 1-0 entering this Friday’s Bluegrass Bowl at Lexington Catholic and look to improve their record just like Coach Will Wolford and St. Xavier are.

At 6:15 PM on Friday, the Tigers will kick off the first leg of the Bluegrass Bowl double-header at Lexington Catholic High School against the Bryan Station Defenders.  Key players to watch in this game for the Defenders are Wide Receiver Marcus Floyd and Running Back/Free Safety Devon Key.  Bryan Station Head Coach Frank Parks is very high on both of these players and believes they can compete against the best players and teams in the state.

Bryan Station defeated Harlan County 56-22 last Friday and will now have their first tough test of the season against our Tigers.  They will have to get used to the stiff competition because they will see both Lexington Catholic and Highlands later on down the road which will surely make a tough schedule for the Defenders this year.

It is only an hour drive down I-64 to Lexington, so we encourage everyone to do the same as we are and make the trip to Lexington Catholic High School to see the Tigers play this Friday!  If you want to make it into a St. X weekend in Lexington, stay the night and check out Former Tiger Charles Walker play in his first college game on Saturday against UT-Martin at Commonwealth Stadium at Noon!
