Palmetto's early-season struggles haven't gotten to Brandon Tarpley.
Considered one of the strongest prep kickers in the nation, Tarpley has accounted for all of the Tigers' scoring this season, converting field goals against Southeast and Manatee, and has been a force with his punts.
He averaged 44.7 yards on seven punts Friday at Manatee, saving his best for his last kick, which went 58 yards. Tarpley also hit a 50-yarder earlier in the game.
"He comes to play every day," coach Raymond Woodie said about Tarpley.
