Soccer program in AHSAA Spotlight

Staff Report

The Tallassee boys' soccer team captured this week's AHSAA Soccer Spotlight.

The Tigers, coached by Keiven Mixson and Matthew Tarpley, opened the season with seven straight wins, the best start in school history.

The Tigers, which started 3-4 last year, outscored opponents 64-0 in their first seven matches with five decided by 10-0 scores.

Senior Will Blocker, who set the school record for goals in a season last year with 28, already has 13 this season. Sophomore Irvin Delfin had 16 goals and eight assists, which leads the team in both categories.
