Raiders Hope to Rebound Against Tullahoma

After a season-opening win over Summit, Spring Hill has been unable to put another tally in the win column. Last week’s game ended in heartbreak for the Raiders as Dickson County topped them in overtime. This week, winless Tullahoma comes to town for the Raiders’ second regional game of the season.

Oden Looks Continue Impressive Season

While the results on the field haven’t proven successful in the win column for the Raiders, quarterback Tylin Oden has been huge for the Spring Hill offense. The dual-threat Louisville commit has been monstrous through the season both on the ground and through the air. When Oden has been unable to get going, running back Dontae Smith has been able to pick up the slack, running for over 100 yards and two touchdowns against Page in their last regional contest. Outside, Oden has been able to rely on Dre Smith and his brother Justin. Smith hauled in two touchdowns against Dickson County. An overmatched Wildcat defense will likely provide the Raiders the chance for big plays.

Defense Looks for Redemption

Missed tackles and big plays have plagued the Raider defense, particularly over the past three weeks. However, Tullahoma’s offense provides a respite for Spring Hill’s defense. Tullahoma has averaged just over a touchdown a game and has not scored since week 2 against Franklin County. Daniel Johnson was able to provide big plays against Dickson County from the secondary, and looks to provide the same this week.

For a Raiders’ team look to get back on the right side of the win-loss column, Tullahoma is a welcome sight on the schedule. A win would also help Spring Hill’s playoff chances in Class 4A.
