Port St. Joe football Coach Chuck Gannon said last week’s visit to Jefferson County was an early test for his young squad, which has just seven seniors on the roster.

The Tiger Sharks passed with flying colors.

Port St. Joe went out of the county for the first time this season and won its second-straight 38-7 to improve to 3-1.

The road gets no easier as the Tiger Sharks visit Chipley this week, but the long excursion to Monticello highlighted that this year’s squad is no easy mark.

“We talked about it as coaches on the way over and we just had a tremendous week of practice,” Gannon said. “Maybe the best week this year. We put in a lot of defensive adjustments because (Jefferson County) throws a lot, but the kids were focused and worked hard.

“And as the game kept going along we kept getting stronger. We are really pleased with the way they focused and played.”

The Tiger Sharks won with a familiar game plan.
