Morris Stadium was packed for the Titan homecoming, as GCHS's offense looked across the line at the Sherman Tide. Both teams entered the con- test (,3-0), and Sherman was ranked #7 in Class A - just a head of #11 Gilmer. Shuff stared down the Tide det~nse as he accepted the snap early in the first quarter. This was a defense holding their op- ponents to about 14 points a game. There record said this was a strong team. However, the Titan offense knew if they were going to get ahead in this game they had to test that defense. TITAN CAPTAINS B. ROBERTS (#55), C. HALEY (#47), J.

For much of the third quar- ter, it seemed ,as if the Tide had figured out the Titan's game. In fact, neither team scored until late in the quarter. With three minutes to play in the third, Self caught a Shuff pass deep in Gilmer territory. Self sprinted up the field, and he looked to be headed toward the endzone. However, he was stopped just short when a Sherman defender grabbed him, unexpectedly knocking the ball out of his grasp. G. Haley swooped in behind him to reco~'er the fumble ,'rod carryitthe final 10yards for the score, 28-0. Sherman finally got on the board in the fourth, but GCHS would wrap the game up with one final score on a Shuff to Haley 29-yard pass late in the game. GCHS had earned the Home- coming victory; the Titans are 4-0! For Shuff, it was another huge game in the pocket! Shuff con- nected on 18-of-25 passes for 307 yards.
