PAINTSVILLE, Ky (WYMT) - Week three of high school football interviews continue this week, we're taking a closer look at the Paintsville Tigers..
The tigers are coming off a 2-9 season. First year Head Coach Joe Chirico says they have a young team and with a short roster.
He says players will be playing on both sides of the ball, but that is a challenge they are willing to accept.
"We've got a lot of young kids that's going to have to play immediately and that's the thing about our program. We've got 23 kids that are putting their heart and soul into this and a lot of those kids are freshman and sophomores, but we have like 9 seniors so that's a good thing. It's challenging but they know they've gotta be in great shape because they gotta run all day they're going to play special teams, offense and defense. They understand that and know the challenge." said Coach Chirico.
