Tigers getting ready
By Chris & Laurie Mueller
The DeQuincy Tiger football team continues to work hard in preparation for the 2015 football season.
New head coach Charlie Smith has his Tigers working out Monday through Thursday in the weight room and on the practice field as the first day of practice looms ever so close. The parking lot is full everyday during workouts as enthusiasm is very high for the approaching season. The coaching staff is hard at work, as well, as they have been putting in long hours all summer preparing as well.
The first official day of practice is Monday, Aug. 10, less than three weeks away. The summer has flown by as the first day of school, Aug. 12, is almost here. The Tigers will scrimmage Basile at home Thursday, Aug. 2.
DeQuincy's first game will be Sept. 4 in Pickering. The following week the Tigers will have their home opener and will take on the South Cameron Tarpons.
The Tigers hope to get off to a quick start and improve on last years 4-11 record. The Tigers remaining games in order are at Westlake, Rayne, at Crowley, Welsh, at Vinton, Kinder, at Mamou, and at Lake Arthur.
