One week after suffering its first loss, the ADM football team rebounded with a win. The Tigers took on Atlantic at ADM’s homecoming game Sept. 24 and won 40-16.

ADM and Atlantic kept it close to start, ending the first quarter tied 13-13.

Head coach Garrison Carter said the team got off to a lethargic start but once the Tigers got going, he said they played well.

“We kind of got caught sleepwalking through the first quarter and Atlantic took advantage of that,” Carter said in an email.

ADM was able to turn it around following the first quarter, pulling ahead 27-16 at halftime and putting it away in the third, going up 40-16.

Carter said the Tigers were able to pull away because both the offensive and defensive lines took over and once that happened, ADM was tough to stop.

Sophomore Brevin Doll was one such player who couldn’t be stopped, as he led the team with 138 rushing yards on 11 carries for three touchdowns.

Doll won the 200-meter state title as a freshman last year, and Carter said his speed is a game-changer for the Tigers.

“Brevin is an explosive athlete,” Carter said. “When he gets in space he's not going to be caught and that is a huge weapon.”

The homecoming aspect of the game added another level of excitement to the game for Carter and the Tigers.

After their most recent win, the Tigers now sit at 4-1 on the season.

Carter said ADM has been able to be so successful this season due to its strength in blocking and tackling.

“Football games are won by the team that blocks the best, tackles the best and takes care of the football,” Carter said.

The Tigers are now preparing for their game against Creston, another 4-1 team and a big game for ADM, according to Carter.

He said both teams are familiar with the other and it will be a very physical game won by the team that does the little things the best.

ADM takes on Creston at 7 p.m. Oct. 1 at Creston High School.
