Wildcats Football Host First Round Against Defending 1A Champs

Monterey (10-0, 5-0) vs Whitwell (2-8, 1-3)

A two-win Whitwell Tigers football team travels to Monterey Friday night to take on the undefeated 10-0 Monterey Wildcats.

However, this Whitwell football team is not your typical two-win football program. The 2018 Whitwell football team went 15-0 on their way to a Class 1A state championship.

Whitwell also began the 2019 season as a preseason AP Top 10 team and they had four preseason all-state selections.

This season the Wildcats and Whitwell have faced three common opponents. Monterey went 3-0 against Bledsoe County, Sale Creek, and Lookout Valley. Whitwell lost to Bledsoe County and Sale Creek but did beat Lookout Valley.

“We are going to have to play a complete football game,” Monterey football head coach Scott Hughes said. “We’ve not really done that the past few weeks.”

Monterey and Whitwell kick off at 7 P.M. in Monterey this Friday night.
