The North Forsyth Thanksgiving Classic, also known as the Raiders Classic, tipped-off on Nov. 23 at North Forsyth High School. Featuring eight teams from the local area, including Dawson County, the annual tournament is a good early-season test for the Tigers according to Head Coach Eric Herrick. “We will play three games in the tournament, regardless of the results,” Herrick said. “It’s designed to ramp-up in difficulty each round so it will be a good measure of where we sit so far.” The Tigers entered the Classic sporting a 2-0 record after senior Eli Burrus’ led the team past the Flowery Branch Falcons on Nov. 19 with a monstrous night under the net. Burrus grabbed 18 rebounds and posted 14 points to give Dawson County the 55-36 victory.
