The Frenship Tigers are headed to the state tournament in 7-on-7 football for the first time since 2007, and they're lead by a familiar name. Tucker Tuberville, son of Texas Tech head football coach Tommy Tuberville, will quarterback the Tigers this weekend for a shot at a state title in College Station.

This will be the first appearance in the tournament for Frenship since 2007, when current Tech quarterback Seth Doege was at the helm for the Tigers. Just like Doege, this year's signal caller brings an elite skill set to the field.

"Tucker can place that ball right there, wherever I'm at--he gets it right there," said wide receiver Cade Davis. "Him playing wide receiver last year really lets him know how to run the offense" he added.

"With the team chemistry we have and how we all get along...I think we can go far," said Davis.  It's that chemistry built between Tuberville and his route runners that gives his teammates optimism going into a 64-team field starting Saturday.

Inside linebacker Aaron Pool agrees: "Of course we want to win it all, that's always the goal. I really think we've got a good chance, as long as we go out there and play really hard."

Frenship will learn who they're paired with in their first game on Friday when they arrive at the tournament.
