Rogersville started the year off strong by defeating East Newton on Friday, Aug. 25.
The Wildcats played well, dropping 28 points on the Patriots and giving up none in return.
"I'm proud of our o-line for keeping Thessen Prenger clean the entire night," said head coach Mark Talbert. "They allowed Prenger and Kolbey Ballowe to have big nights."
The Wildcats racked up 176 passing yards, along with 168 rushing yards to take home the win.
"Our defense is going to be our strength all season long," said Talbert. "East Newton had a few plays that extended drives, but as soon as the ball got into the red-zone, our defense killed every drive. I believe this group has a very high ceiling and will continue to get better every week with Coach Kyle Schenker's game plans."
Rogersville will host Lamar at home on Friday, Sept. 1.
"We will approach Lamar the same way we did East Newton," explained Talbert. "The quality of the opponent matters in that we have to get a great scout team look in practice, but it will not affect our mentality in play calling and preparation. Every game for us has to be the focus of the week. This week it's Lamar, and that is the only thing that matters."
