(Neola) It's been fourteen years since the Tri-Center Trojans have made the high school football playoffs but first year head coach John Tiarks says anything less than a playoff appearance will be a disappointment. Tiarks has served as an assistant with Riverside and Underwood for the past several years and now gets his first head coaching job. He says he will bring an attacking style of defense and an option based system on offense. Through the first week and a half of practice Coach Tiarks has found that he has a team with a great speed and also good size. Tri-Center will play in Week 0 against Missouri-Valley.
