The long wait is over for the Warren County High School football team.The Pioneers will finally put on the pads for the start of the regular season tonight when Warren County travels to DeKalb County to face the Tigers.It is the eighth straight year the Pioneers have played the Tigers and the sixth time in a row the two teams have met to begin the season.Warren County holds the series lead with five wins in the past seven years, but the Tigers come into this year hoping to extend their winning streak to two games in the series.DeKalb County won 26-7 at Nunley Stadium last year and several key Tigers return with the hopes of knocking off their border rivals a second straight year.Warren County coach Tommy Johnson, who enters his third season with a 3-17 record, knows the challenge the Tigers pose in the opener.“DeKalb County is a solid team,” said Johnson. “They can throw the ball and make plays. They have a good quarterback and some solid receivers.”Lucas Phillips returns for his senior season as the starting QB for DeKalb County.
