The Texas High Tigers will honor their Seniors this Friday night at Tiger Stadium at Grim Park.
The Tigers will also be trying to extend their season into the Texas state playoffs. Texas High hosts West Mesquite. A victory along with a John Tyler win over Sherman would ensure the Tigers will see playoff action.
If Sherman beats John Tyler, that would throw the playoff possibilities into tie-breakers, such as points.
So, here’s hoping for a Texas High win and a John Tyler win…..It’s just more simple!!!
The Tigers are on a bit of a roll as we head into the final regular season game shooting for their third straight District win in a row. Texas High Head Football Coach Gerry Stanford is pleased with his team’s effort. “Yes, we feel good about where we are and the chance we’ve given ourselves.”
The Tigers offense is back in high gear since the return of their starting Quarterback Rian Cellers, along with the running game which has been firing on all cylinders the past several games.
Standing in the way of a possible Texas High playoff game is West Mesquite. The Wranglers come in off a loss to Sherman but are dangerous according to Coach Stanford. “West Mesquite is very physical with tremendous speed. ”
As we mentioned earlier this is also Senior Night for the Tigers. Stanford had this to say about his team leaders, “They are a great group of Seniors who have really worked hard over the last 4 years. Very proud of their leadership and effort this year.”
Should be a very large and vocal Tiger crowd in place, and don’t be surprised at all if Stanford’s team takes care of business with a regular season victory over West Mesquite.
Now let’s hope it’s enough to get them into playoffs to fight on!!!
