Tornadoes Stepping Up in Class This Week

Panama City, FL---Among the area high school teams with a shot at starting the season three and oh if it can get a win in a couple of nights is Bay.

Coach Jimmy Longerbeam and his Tornadoes began the season with a win over 4-A Marianna. Followed that up with a win last week over 1-A Port St. Joe.

Friday night, the Tornadoes go back on the road to play up in class, to face the 7-A Tate Aggies.

"It will probably be the biggest team that we've played to this point," says coach Longerbeam "and they've got tremendous skill kids. They do a great job run and pass and they'll be a little big more physical on defense than anybody we've seen to this point. They've done a great job with their program. They beat Pensacola High last week for the first time in ten or fifteen years. It's gonna be a real challenge for us."

Tate goes into that game 1-1, an opening loss to West Florida, and that win over Pensacola.
