(GRANT CITY, Mo.)- The Worth County Tigers football program own the most 8-man state football championships and knows every team is looking to knock them off.

"Worth County football- it's a tradition," Senior Isaac Alarcon said. 

The Tigers captured their seventh state championship in program history in 2017. 

"We won state," Senior Caleb Parman said. "We went all the way. We got our goal."

Worth County knows it won't be easy to get back to the title game, but the Tigers are motivated to prove people wrong. 

"We lost a lot last year, but we've got some returners that will be pretty solid and people saying that we might not be as good is a pretty good motivation to try and go back again," Senior Colton Wilmes said.

The Tigers open the 2018 season next Friday at home against South Holt/Nodaway-Holt.

Moving into the weekend, we will be keeping an eye on the potential for flooding rain and strong thunderstorms. On Saturday, the rain might hold off until the afternoon but will be widespread late Saturday and into Sunday. This is when the heaviest rain should fall. Expect rainfall totals to be anywhere from 2-4 inches. This could bring area streams and rivers to flood stage so make sure you are watching out for that.
