Wellsville Tigers Scrimmage Crestview

The coin toss

The WHS Tigers hosted the Crestview Rebels in a scrimmage Thursday evening at Nicholson Stadium.  Weather wise it was a beautiful night for football.  Crestview brought in a herd of players, coaches and others to Wellsville.  It took three school buses to get them all here. 

Got another QB!
We were only able to take in part of the action due to other demands.  When we left the Tigers were down 2 – 0.   However, that is no big deal.  The score in a scrimmage is meaningless.  The important part is for the players to gain experience going up against another team.  It also provides a valuable opportunity for the coaches to evaluated the players and determine what needs a little more tweaking.  It’s an opportunity to enhance the whole enchilada that makes a winning team.  We really believe the 2012 Tigers have all the ingredients needed to make a winner. 
Looking for some daylight

Last night’s action finished up the scrimmages for the new season.  Record keeping begins Saturday, a week from now, on August 25.  The Tigers will play host to their down river arch rivals, the Toronto Red Knights.  It’s a non-league game that is scheduled to begin at 7:30.  It is also the WTOV Channel 9 game of the week. 

Get your school spirit outfits ready.  Come to the game and support the 2012 Tigers.  Let show former Wellsville coach/teacher, Eric Meek, we take serious pride in the Orange & Black.   We believe it’s going to be an exciting year for Wellsville football.
