The Mansfield Jr High Tigers have been spending their summer days gearing up for the upcoming football season through early morning practices and vigorous football camps. Recently the Jr Tigers attended a camp in Greenwood alongside the Bulldogs and the Van Buren Pointers.
The Tigers were not only competing against the other teams on the field but another source as well. The Sun! With temps in the upper 90’s, some players were having a hard time pushing through the heat and humidity. But as always, Mansfield prevailed and by the end of the camp the Tigers had ended up bringing a “heat” of their own.
Coach Tim Cothran had this to say about his Jr High Tigers, “I thought the Jr High did well at football camp. The heat got to us a little but we will acclimate and be fine. I thought our effort was tremendous and I really think this group will be able to accomplish their goals this season. Our numbers are slightly down but summers are often hard on Jr High activities.” This week the Tigers will be heading back to Greenwood for football camp on Tuesday, July 16.
