It's been a great start to the 2013 season for Mansfield Senior, as the Tygers have been virtually unchallenged through their first 4 games. But the scary thing for the rest of their opponents is that they might just be getting started.

Tygers starting quarterback Jalen Reese has been brilliant to begin his senior campaign. Throwing for 1,067 yards and 12 TD's, while leading Mansfield Senior to 172 points during the teams 4-0 start. But Reese says he see's the team getting better almost daily in just about every aspect of the game, especially along the offensive line.

The biggest concern facing the Tygers when the season kicked off was whether or not they could fill several holes on the O-line left by graduation. But the teams offensive line coach Andy Kepple says he's been impressed with the kids work ethic in practice and that they've come a long way since the start of training camp.

The lone starter returning starter on the offensive line was senior Tarrance Brooks, who says he hasn't really had to be a vocal leader at practice because the other guys are so in tuned. Junior center Cole Kiser also says the crew is locked-in and have been improving every day.

Reese believes the offensive line questions have been answered already this season and says the team overall continues to make strides. Everybody agreed that it has been exciting to get off to the school's first 4-0 start in many years and that the environment for Friday night's game against Orrville would be nothing short of electric.

Like Mansfield Senior, the Red Riders are also off to a unbeaten start, but have been mixed up in several tough battles. Orrville's last three games were decided by 7-points or less and three of the squads first four games have been played at home.

Tygers head coach Chioke Bradley says it's a great home field advantage playing in front of the area's "best fans" at Arlin Field where the visiting Red Riders will travel on Friday. But Bradley also noted that Orrville is a very tough, physical football team that his Tygers must be prepared for.

Highlights from the Tygers and Red Riders can be seen on WMFD's Scores and More Friday night LIVE at 11:30 p.m.
