Dean Hiott will wear neutral colors for Friday night’s “Rumble on the River” rivalry game in Bibb County.  Hiott will spend the first half of the game on Bibb County’s side supporting her grandson, starting quarterback Matt Hiott, and the second half with the home crowd in support of her other grandson, starting linebacker EJ Hiott, and her son, Tigers head coach Eric Hiott.

This is the last time the senior cousins will line up against one another on the football field, and grandma Hiott can’t wait to cheer them on.

“You wish both of them could win, of course you know somebody has got to lose. I get so excited,” she said. “I can’t wait.”

And she’s not the only one.

“We are both excited and ready to go,” EJ said. “We’ve been texting and talking back and forth all week. We are excited it’s the last time we get to play each other, but at the same time kind of disappointed it’s our last year. It’s always been a big rivalry between us and we always enjoy playing each other.”
