P-W hosting Brinkley in first home game of season

A year ago, the Brinkley Tigers were solid finishing the 2015 season at 7-1 and played two games deep into the Class AA state playoffs.

Losing almost all of their starters and senior strength from last year’s squad has the Tigers looking for ways to be successful this year.

Palestine-Wheatley will host Brinkley tonight and head coach Charles Sartin is looking to build on last week’s season-opening win over Rector.

He will have to do it without starting quarterback Carter Milton, who was ejected from last week’s game and is serving a one-game suspension.

Jacob Swiney takes over at quarterback tonight.
