Mendenhall will travel to Germantown Friday for the FOX40 Sports Deck game of the week. The Tigers made the same trip a year ago and came away on the losing end of a wild 42-41 game.
This season Mendenhall enters after an 0-2 start, while Germantown is 2-0.
The Tigers no longer have play-making QB Khadarel Hodge (now at Alcorn St.) but they still have plenty of offensive talent on the field. They are led by senior WR's Jarva Brewer and Julius Craft.
The pair each caught 10 touchdown passes last season, while Craft had 842 yards receiving and Brewer 542.
Both players scored TD's against Germantown last year, including 3 by Craft in the first half alone.
