Belton is looking to change the culture of Tiger football this year.
After finishing 6-5 on the year last season, the Tigers are looking to make more of a statement on both sides of the ball.
With a lot of talent out wide and in the secondary, Head Coach Sam Skidmore said when it comes to one-on-one situations, his guys won't be backing down.
This group is more experienced than teams past. So, returning QB Connor Carothers will be looking to the talented route runners out wide to get points on the board while the defense holds it down, getting to the QB and creating turnovers.
"We're going past expectations. Belton's not known for going very far in the playoffs. So, we're here to make that change, and we're here to go as deep as we can and make it a great season," Tyler Cook, Tigers senior wide receiver, said.
"They don't back down from any challenge. They did it all. We revamped off season, made it a lot tougher, brought some new things into the fold, and they competed and they battled, and they competed during 7 on 7 this summer. So, they're just not going to back down from a challenge. Anytime you're gonna go hit somebody in the mouth and you're gonna compete, you got a chance to be successful," Head Coach Sam Skidmore said.
Belton will only have two out-of-district games this year in preparation for a rivalry heavy district.
Week one they have Westlake out of Austin at home.
