It has been eight years since an organized football game has been played on the baseball/football field north of the New England School, but football has returned to New England.

Through the unselfish efforts of the newly reorganized New England Booster Club, tackle football was reborn. Successful teams “build a program,” and where would one start? The obvious answer would be when the players are young, such as grades 4-6.

Seventeen boys and one girl were all members of the team that joined a league in Dickinson. The Tigers hosted the ‘Black’ team from Dickinson in a playoff match-up last Saturday, unfortunately, the Tigers drew the short straw in a 26-0 loss.

The good news is that “Tiger Football Pride” has returned to the grid iron.
