    Cumby will take on Trenton at 7:30 p.m. Friday in Trenton.
  The Trojans are 0-4 for the year, but 19-point favorites.
  Cumby lost last week 48-0 at Hawkins. The Trojans started the year, losing to Alba-Golden, 32-18; then fell 37-7 at home to Celeste and were defeated 27-6 by Wolfe City.
    Trenton for year has an 0-4 record. The team fell 56-6 to S&S Consolidated to open the year; then Bells rung up a 34-14 win over the Tigers.  The last two weeks, Trenton has been held scoreless, they lost 53-0 to Quinlan Boles and were flattened 39-0 in Detroit.
    “The team has responded very well after the tough loss to Hawkins,” said Tom Dracos, Cumby head football coach. “Losing four in a row is not easy for any of us. Everyone of us gets knocked down in life; it's the ones that get back up that are the winners.  We have gotten back up and we are working harder this week than the weeks before.  The kids have a hunger to win.  We are working with a "No Excuses" mentality and it is exciting to see.”
    Dracos added, “We have done a good job as a coaching staff keeping the kids heads up and focused on our goals.  We don't want to win the first 10 but the last 10.”
    Dracos said the Tigers feature a spread offense and a 4-2 defense.
    Trenton has five offensive and five defensive starters returning from a team which went 1-9 last season.
    The Tigers continue their struggle to score points. They were outscored 383-20 last season.
    Players to watch include: quarterback Kever Wylie; running back Anthony Johnson; defensive ends Garrett Puryear and Wylie. The team is ranked No. 83 in the Harris Ratings, Cumby is No. 69.
open week

  After losing four games a row, the Eagles needed a break this week.
    “We are working on some basics, such as blocking and tackling, which still are what the game is about,” said C-P head coach Conley Bland. “Also, we are assessing what we do on offense and defense in order to determine what we can do to improve in both areas.”
