Mobley and Rudolph produce big plays during McKenzie#039;s first week of practice

The McKenzie Tigers wrapped up the first week of practice under new head coach Miles Brown Friday under high temperatures and high intensity.

Brown, who said his team lacked intensity and enthusiasm during the spring, was pleasantly surprised by his team's demeanor on just the fifth day of practice.

&#8220All that intensity, yelling and trash talking you heard, we didn't have that intensity during the spring and that's something I am trying to get these boys to understand,” Brown said.

During Friday's practice, the first-team offense went up against the second-team defense and the offense provided several big plays.

Quarterback Sattrick Rudolph had at least four big carries, two for touchdowns and two for at least 40 yards.

Running back Jarrell Mobley also had several huge runs, including two runs over 50 yards for touchdowns.

Following his second touchdown, Mobley took a rest for a few series.

The Tigers will continue to practice in pads over the next two weeks and begin the season September 1 at J.U. Blacksher.
