The Tipton Cardinals have not lost a regular season game since 2006 and the Pigskin Preview predicts the Cardinals will be undefeated this year.
Senior running back Dallas Peoples, an All-State selection last year, is built like a bowling ball and has deceptive speed, which makes him extremely difficult to tackle. He's also an All-District team selection at linebacker.
When the Cardinals aren't running the ball, their air attack should be good. Senior quarterback Riley Brant was named to the All-Conference and All-District teams in 2011. His favorite target figures to be senior wide receiver Ethan Koechner.
The defensive line has a good combination of size and speed. Coach Braby is confident they'll be able to get after the quarterback and stop the run.
Though talented, depth and a difficult schedule could present themselves as issues for Tipton.
Coach: Tony Braby (entering 15th season)
Quarterback: Sr. Riley Brant
Returning Starters: 11 (5 on offense, 6 on defense)
