"This is when you find out a lot about people. When you're winning everyone is fine. Now let's find out who we are."
Cushing Tiger coach, Barrett Shupe, keeps a positive attitude after a hear-wrenching 39-0 loss to Tulsa's Berryhill Chiefs on Friday night. "We obviously have a lot to work on. We just have to continue to correct things and really just rally around each other."
Now 2-1 for the season, the Tigers finished the game with 74 rushing yards, 5 first downs and 0 touchdowns. More than half of the team's overall yards were gained in a single 49 yard run by #23 junior Trevor Ailey. Coupled with consistently strong defensive plays, including Week 2's Play of the Game, Ailey secured his role as this week's RDMG Commentator's Choice for MVP.
This week's Viewer's Choice for MVP was tied for votes between #5 Hunter Puls and #13 Matt Yates.
