Syrupmakers ready to pour it on

August 20, 2007

Cairo -- The Cairo Syrupmakers will have plenty experience back from a team that made it to the second round of the state playoffs last season.

The Syrupmakers are looking for big things again this year, and they'll have to start by replacing big wide receiver Cameron Wade.

The 6-foot-4 Wade is now catching passes at Florida State, but Cairo returns twenty seniors, many of them three year starters.

The Syrupmakers lost just one game in region play last season, but it cost them the region title, and head coach Tom Fallaw says his team is looking to finish this year on top.

"Expectations for this year are no different than it always is at Cairo," says Fallaw. "I think every time you step on the field here you want to win a region championship. That's our goal to start off with, and then you start talking about going far in the playoffs."

The Syrupmakers open the season at home August 31st against Osborne High School from Marietta.
