It was a long grind for the Logansport Tigers as they fought through the regular football season. They ended up the #1 seed in 1A and they put up an impressive list of victories in the playoffs.
The season came to an end last Saturday afternoon in the Superdome in New Orleans. The state championship trophy eluded the Tigers as they lost to Homer 41 to 28.
The town’s pride in the team stood out in a post from Logansport High. “The Tiger Nation showed up in NOLA for our Tiger team. It may not be the ending we wanted but hold your heads high guys – the summer workouts, overcoming all the covid quarantines, starting 0-4, everything else ya’ll faced, your perseverance paid off. Seniors thank you for your leadership and all you brought to this team for the last 4 years. We are proud of you!”
Praise for the Tigers came from DeSoto Schools Superintendent Clay Corley. “The scoreboard and conventional thinking say that we came up short. HOWEVER, this team, this school, and this community came up anything BUT short! You showed up and showed out time and time again this season. Keep your head up Tiger Nation, there’s so much to be proud of. Congratulations Tigers on a heckuva ride. We are all proud of you!”
