The Trojans are 0-4 for the year, but 19-point favorites.

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.
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.”
