MIDDLETON, Tenn. — Middleton doesn’t like the stereotype about their football program. “Everyone thinks we always lose,” senior Bradley Sullivan said. “We never do anything” That perception comes from the Tigers two decade playoff drought. “It’s been 25 years since Middleton has been in the playoffs,” head coach Craig Harris said. And two years since their last victory. That 2013 win came against Rossville Christian in Week 9. “No one ever talks about Middleton football,” Sullivan said. The team has a solution for that. “Just win,” senior Keon Pipkin smiled. His fellow classmate Sullivan believes more people want to come and try to be a part of team if the win. That remains to be seen, but Harris sees a big difference entering into his sixth year on the Tigers’ sidelines. “Playing as a team instead of individuals,” Harris said. “Play as a team and be united.” Failing to win a game last year doesn’t sit well with anyone on the team. Middleton is hopeful this season will have a better outcome. “If they work hard and do the right things,” Harris said the losing streak can end. “Good things are going to happen.” The Tigers will play Fayette Academy at home on Friday for a jamboree.
