The Tigers are a very fundamentally sound football team. And, they’re lightning quick, which makes the flexbone/option offense employed by George Smith even that much more dangerous. Just to give you an idea, three different quarterbacks have run George Smith’s offense the past three years, and the Tigers have gone 33-7. Fullback Nico Price, one of three 800+ yard rushers for McKeesport last season, returns. The big question is who will replace speed-demon Marvase Byrd, who ran for a combined 1,900 yards from 2006-’07? And how will McKeesport fair against Cincinnati Colerain in the Herbstreit Challenge – Colerain flattened its last Pennsylvania opponent, Cardinal O’Hara, 28-0 in 2004.
