(Neola) The Tri-Center football team kicks off their 2012 football season by taking on AHST Friday night. Tri-Center's goal this season according to head coach John Tiarks is to not only make the playoffs, but win a playoff game. The Trojans are 0-5 in their postseason history.
The team returns several starters from a season ago. Their top four rushers return from last season. Quarterback Britton Barrier returns for his fourth year as the starter. He ran for fourteen touchdowns last season. Doug Hoke was the teams leading rusher a year ago and he comes back for his senior year. Ben Wellman and Loren Williams are each back in the backfield.
Coach Tiarks says he looks for AHST to continue with the same style of play despite the fact that they have a new head coach. Tri-Center will try to maintain their philosophy that clear minds play fast.
