Updated: October 20, 2014

DeKalb County Tigers came into Homecoming with a 2 and 5 record looking to shake off a couple of tough losses on the road. After winning the coin flip Macon Co. went 3 and out and DeKalb Co got the ball on their own 44. #2 Steven Jennings handed the ball to #10 Luke Boss for his first 2 of many yards on the night. After handing off to #10 Boss for a 12 yard gain and then a short 2 yard run, #2 Jennings pass was intercepted by Macon Co at their won 2 yard line. Thanks to a stingy DCHS defense Macon Co only moved the ball 12 yards before having to punt the ball away again and DeKalb took over on Macon County’s 47 yard line. #2 Steven Jennings started marching the offense toward the endzone. Only 8 plays later DeKalb had the ball on the 6 yard line where #2 Jennings hooked up with #5 Lane Ball for the first score of the game. #13 Matthew Poss came on and made his first point after of 6 for the night and the Tigers led 7-0.
