Football season is back, and the Groom Tigers are hitting it hard in the sweltering heat. The Tigers played Claude and White Deer at last weekend’s scrimmage. “It was a good learning opportunity,” senior Tyler Cox said. “Our defense looked good, but we saw some things we could improve on.”

This year the Tigers will have twelve players walking out on game day. Six of those players are upperclassmen and six are lowerclassmen.
“I think we will have a pretty good season,” Cox said. The Tigers will play another scrimmage this Friday, August 23rd in Mclean at 5 pm.
The new roster of players includes:
Freshmen: Stephen Kuehler and Blayne Shuck
Sophomores: Phineas Eugea, Damon Kuehler, and Colby Linquist
Juniors: Tyler Boyd and Braedon Williams
Seniors: Tyler Cox, Cade Linquist, Hunter Richardson, and Whitt Ward
