Summer Weights concluded today. The goal for football players was to make 75% of the sessions through the summer. If a player made 60% it means they worked out at least 3 days a week on average. For High School we ended the summer with 9 out of 34 potential players who made 75% (Shaded Green). If we use the minimum of 3 days a week 16 out of 34 make the cut (Shaded Yellow). For junior high anything above 3 days a week is pretty good. We had 13 out of 30 (including 6th graders) make at least 60% and 6 players hit 75%. The following players all hit their 75% goal. Good work fellas! 12th grade: Jon Craig, Kellen McAfee, Jaxyn Strauss 11th Grade: Zane Ebel 10th Grade: Robert Gilkerson, Tate Wilcox 9th Grade: Cade Caudle, Zavier Ebel, Ashton Martin 8th Grade: Jacoby Bangert, Bowdy Jones 7th Grade: Callen Furnas, Zane Elms 6th Grade: Brandon Collier, Ryder Hullman
Week 8 is in the books for football. It was camp week and things went well. Football players were given today off to recover from yesterdays competitions.

There will also be a Junior High and High School football parents meeting on August 2nd at 6:00PM in the High School cafeteria. We anticipate the field being completed this weekend or early next week.
The Tiger football team competed at the Concordia Football Camp today. The Tigers scrimmaged Omaha Bryan, North Platte, Norris, Hartington Cedar Catholic, Beatrice, York, Fillmore Central and Lincoln Christian. We were one of the smallest schools at the camp but got stronger as it got hotter. All football players earned the day off tomorrow. We have one more week of weights, next week. August 8th we will start Fall Practice at 6:00AM on the new turf. We are finally back home! Great work today Tigers!
Week 7 in the books for Tiger Football. We have roughly 34 HS players and 31 JH prospective players on the books. As of now 30% of HS has met the 75% goal and 25% of JH have met the 75% goal. We have 71% of HS at 50% or higher and 65% of JH at 50% or higher in regards to attendance. Thursday and Friday were our first days of camp. We had to adjust due to lightning on both days but the Team worked hard and adapted well. This week we continue 7-12 football camp on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at South School from 6AM till 8AM. Thursday the High School travels too Seward to compete at the Concordia camp where we will get our first full contact test. As the heat and humidity climb so does the challenge. Go Tigers!
