What's one thing Midway and Mansfield have in common? They have both been coached by current Panthers head coach Jeff Hulme.
Hulme had a successful eight year run in charge of the Tigers before taking the reigns at Midway, where the Panthers are off to a 12-0 start.
The Tigers have been almost as good this year, going 11-1 so far under current head man Daniel Mayberry, who coached under Hulme.
And though there's a bit of familiarity between the teams, don't read too far into that fact.
"The two coordinators that Daniel has there now are two coaches that I had when I was there, so I feel like I know them pretty good. But it's still a players' game and our kids gotta go out there and play hard and play without making any mistakes," said Hulme.
Kickoff between Midway and Mansfield is set for Friday at 7:30 at McLane Stadium.
