Riley Kliethermes (28) runs behind blocker Will Pickerell (56) during action in Friday night’s football jamboree held at Paris High School. The Tigers ran scrimmages against Schuyler County, Van far and Monroe City during the preseason event.

Pre-season jamborees typically do not showcase too much of a team’s talents as coaches are reluctant to giveaway any secrets in the preseason before week #1 opens on Friday night.

That said, Scotland County still displayed a multi-faceted offense on August 15th in Paris as rains subsided long enough for the four high school teams to each play a series of varsity offense and defense against each of its counterparts.

The Tigers opened against Schuyler County in a series that saw both team’s defenses dominate, as neither SCR-I nor the Rams made it to the end zone. Riley Kliethermes helped SCR-I move the chains with several nice runs, but the Tigers did not find the end zone.

That changed for Scotland County in round two, as Will McRobert pounded the ball in for a touchdown as the SCR-I ground game marched the ball down the field versus Van Far.

It wasn’t until the third series versus Monroe City that the Tigers defense allowed a touchdown, on a pass play. While the squad struggled a bit to stop the interior run game of the Panthers, SCR-I made up with forcing three turnovers, including a fumble generated by a hard hit by senior linebacker Mason VanHoozen.

The Tigers offense saved the best for last as well. The team quickly moved the ball 40 yards for a score, capped off by a TD run by Austin Day.

It took just one snap for SCR-I to again find pay dirt as new starting quarterback Aaron Buford connected with Ian See for a 40-yard touchdown pass.

Scotland County will be tested right out of the gates. The Tigers travel to Salisbury on August 22nd for the season opener against a team ranked #4 in the state’s pre-season rankings.
