While most south Georgia football teams were making their regular season debuts Friday night, the Tiftarea Panthers were at home, still coming down from the hype of the first week.
“We could use the work to be honest with you. First game of the season, you can't get enough work installing, making sure you got everything lined up, all your ducks in a row,” Payne says. “Even though it was heartbreaking, it was very much needed to work some kinks out.”
The Panthers will play their season opener this Friday night when they host Georgia Christian.
