Port St. Joe: Tiger Sharks hope speed overcomes size

Gannon said winning will help cure any bruises from physical games. He believes the Tiger Sharks have enough talent to have an offense that can contend with any team. It’s a matter of getting through the schedule unscathed.

 “We have to stay healthy and we play the first five or six games before we get to district,” Gannon said. “By the time we get there, it’s gonna be a situation of how beat up are we?

“How good a shape are we in, are we still in a good frame of mind? I can’t answer that right now.”

Gannon pointed to Port St. Joe’s resurgence last season. The Tiger Sharks started 1-2 but finished 7-3 and narrowly missed the playoffs. The district is without Blountstown this season, which moved to 3-1A and placed ahead of Port St. Joe in each of the past two seasons.

“They bought into the system last year,” Gannon said. “We’ll fight and scratch. This is a good group. They’ve shown that already.”
