Halls football team had a good beginning to their 2014 campaign. The ending was the complete opposite. The Tigers 2-0 start would end would eight consecutive losses. “We don’t want to be 2-8 again, we don’t want to give up 70 points again and we don’t want to do things we’ve done in the past,” head coach Chris Parker said. “We want to be a different football team and different brand of football at Halls.” Parker’s main priority was leadership during the off-season. His team did leadership training at Fellowship Christian Athletes. “I think we fell short in leadership. We worked really hard this offseason,” Parker said at Dyersburg’s 7-on-7 tournament. “We had the talent, just didn’t have the leadership.” The Tigers’ roster features 16 seniors. Park believes they’ll have a good season if they can get that team cohesion. “We had 6 a.m. workouts all June and most of them were there every single day when they weren’t on vacation. It’s a buy in we haven’t had before.”
