Tigers’ fans should keep an eye wide receiver Donald Richardson on the offensive side of the ball. Richardson caught five touchdowns last season and big things are expected of him this season. Central has potential on the offensive side of the ball. Fans should look for Central to stretch the field and continue to execute on the ground. Sustaining drives will be key for the Tigers this season.
