Tigers paying tribute to ’92 team

(Continued)

NORMAN —

“We’ve got to treat every game like it’s a title game,” Nation said. “Choctaw is a hard-nosed team that will hit you in the mouth. We’ve got to be ready for that.”

Nation wants his own defense to develop that type of reputation, something the Tigers are working toward with an increased focus on physicality in practice.

“We’ve focused on swarming to the football,” linebacker Blake Dean said. “They [Choctaw] run a lot of different formations, but we’re focusing on not worrying about that and just focusing on our keys.”
