Something really terrific has been brewing around here, locally, and beginning tonight, the celebration begins!!

The Talihina High School Golden Tigers football team is awesome. The team completed a perfect 10-0 season last Friday night, and tonight opens the state 1-A State playoffs at home.

In so doing, the mighty Golden Tigers have piled up impressive, gawdy numbers that any OU Sooners team, past or present would be envious of:

* Four (4) shutouts this season!
* Only One team scored more than 8 points against the Tigers (Sallisaw Central, 13)
* Ranked #10 in the state, and winners of the 1A-6 conference
Sept. 5 - Talihina VS. Antlers, 33-6
Setp. 12 - Talihina VS. Warner, 33-7
Sept. 19 - Talihina VS. Haileyville, 47-0
Sept. 26 - Talihina VS. Quinton, 41-6
Oct. 3 - Talihina VS. Central Sallisaw, 21-13
Oct. 10 - Talihina VS. Savanna, 25-6
Oct. 16 - Talihina VS. Keota, 49-8
Oct. 24 - Talihina VS. Gore, 31-0
Oct. 31 - Talihina VS. Pocola, 35-0
Nov. 7 - Talihina VS. Porum, 41-0

That is whipping the other teams to the tune of 356-46, folks.

Tonight the Team takes on Wewoka (5-5), in the first round.
Come early, for the best parking and best seats~!

Can you spell, Can you smell Victory?
Can you spell Destiny? Here It Is:


The Golden Tigers won easily tonight, beating Wewoka, 42-7.

The Team takes on Woodland High School next week, here.

How fun! I miss High School football. I loved going to the games and then all 4 of my brothers played so it was great to go and see them play! Good luck to the team! :)

It really was great fun, Angela!

The Golden Tigers have several good players, but there is only one great one, and this kid scored all six touchdowns last night!

Leti and I left the game at the beginning of the 3rd quarter, it was so cold and very windy.
