The DeKalb County Tigers have punched their ticket to the TSSAA Class 4A Playoffs after defeating the Cumberland County Jets 16-8 at Crossville in the last game of the regular season Friday night.

The Tigers (3-7 overall, 1-3 region), who finished 4th in Region 3, will travel to Lewisburg next Friday night to take on Marshall County (7-3 overall, 5-0 region) who finished 1st in Region 4.
