Wellsville Tigers Football Season Underway

With Head Coach Dave Skinner watching the 2012 Tigers
wrap up the first half of practice running sprints

It’s official… The Wellsville Tigers have opened up their 2012 Football season.  The dreaded “2-a-days” got underway this past Monday, July 30.  We stopped by yesterday to check it out.  Under a sweltering 90 degree sun we got there in time to catch them doing sprints just before the break.  We were told around 35 student athletes turned out to make up this year’s squad. 

Holding their new helmets high the Tigers huddle up before
their break in Wednesday's practice.
The Tigers have two scrimmages scheduled.  Both them will be at Nicholson Stadium with the first one being set for Saturday, August 11.  It will be a 3-team scrimmage matching skills with Steubenville Central Catholic & Bridgeport.   That is scheduled to begin at 10 AM.  The second scrimmage is scheduled for Thursday, August 16 at 7 PM against Crestview.   Both scrimmages are open to the public. 

The Tigers open the regular season on Saturday, August 25, against the Toronto Red Knights.  It’s the WTOV Channel 9 Game-of-the Week.  The newest class of WHS Athletic Hall of Fame members will be introduced that evening.
