The Blue Ridge High School football team has spent the first month of the season racking up its share of victories and miles.

The 4-0 Tigers have done the bulk of their work on the road so far this season, winning games at Wade Hampton, J.L. Mann and Eastside, and putting themselves in position for a strong finish with four of their final six games at home.

“I think it all comes down preparation,” Blue Ridge head coach Wade Cooper said of winning away from home. “We work hard during our week of practice, and our coaches do a good job of keeping everybody focused.”

The Tigers host Berea Friday night, but return to the familiar highways next week when they play Greenville at Sirrine Stadium.

After returning from next week’s game at Greenville, the Tigers will host Travelers Rest, Southside and Pickens in succession before taking to the road one last time to take on rival Greer in the regular-season finale for both teams.

“We’ve got to protect our home,” said senior running back/linebacker Jonathan Bull after the Tigers’ home win over Chapman. “We can win on the road because we know how to get off the bus and play football. . . . We have to practice and be ready to win at home.”
