The Fort Valley State Wildcats ran into a buzz saw this weekend in the form of Tuskeegee University. Coach Don Pittman and the Cats lost 49-18 to the Golden Tigers at Cleve Abbot Stadium in Alabama.
Tuesday morning it was business as usual for the blue and gold as the Cats look to lick their wounds and improve upon their 3-2 record. The conference loss does not take Fort Valley out of the competition for a SIAC Championship game appearance. Because Tuskegee is in the west and Fort Valley is in the east division, so its possible both teams could matchup again for the SIAC title. So until then Pittman says every week is a must win.
"We're just trying to put that game behind us and move forward", says starting quarterback and Peach County native, Antonio Henton. "Because we still have a chance to win our side. We're still 2-0 and trying to stay positive."
Pittman agrees, "We will bounce back and make a play for the conference championship. We're still in the drivers seat. We still have our destiny. We need to win out and that's what we are going to do, is take it one day at a time and then hopefully well play Tuskeegee at the end."
Saturday, the Wildcats host Kentucky State at New Wildcat Stadium. Kickoff is 6 o'clock.
