The Tigers took on the Longview Lobos in a scrimmage game tonight. Even though there was no score kept, it was a fun exhibition for fans who have missed football. 

Coaches saw positive things in the team’s first outing.

“I think the two teams played really physical, and we found out a lot about each other,” Head Coach Gerry Stanford said. “We’ve learned a lot about ourselves, and [there’s] a lot of positives to build on.”

The Tigers will compete in the home opener against the Tyler Lions at Tiger Stadium Aug. 27 at 7 p.m.
