Tonight is Tiger Football’s 2017 season opener. St. X looks to have a very strong team, but they face a tough test in Cathedral. Let’s take a look at what the Tigers will be up against in this contest.
The Indianapolis Cathedral Irish have high expectations for the 2017 season. Despite finishing 7-5 in 2016, Cathedral opens up this season ranked #1 in Indiana’s 5-A class. A big reason why is the return of bruiser running back Markese Stepp. Stepp, a 4-star Notre Dame commit, will look to get back into the swing of things after missing most of last season due to injury.
On the other side of the field, St. X will look to ride its momentum from last week’s scrimmage against Simon Kenton. The rushing attack, led by seniors Albers and Metzmeier, will be on full display. The defense will also need to come up strong in order for the Tigers to bring home a win.
Get out to the game at 7:30 at St. X. Go Tigers!
