“Football is a game where success and failure can be determined by how the team works for a common goal,” said Head Coach Maurice Webert, as reported in the 1985 South Yearbook. South saw both success and failure during this season.  The team learned skills that they could use both on and off the field. 

The opening game of the season was a non-conference game against Rosemount.  South had determination and desire to compete, but the talent was not equal to that of Rosemount.  The Tigers lost 28-13.

South played their first conference game against Roosevelt.  Roosevelt played like they were a professional team, winning 42-6.

Henry was the next team to play South.  The Tigers suffered their second loss, 29-6.

South hosted Edison for Homecoming.  The Tommies came in with the goal of ruining the Tiger festivities.  South though had other plans.  The Tigers won 14-6.

A defensive struggle was played against Southwest.  Southwest only managed a safety.  The problem is that the Tigers did not even manage that!  Southwest won 2-0.

South stepped out of the conference and played Tartan.  South played a close game but lost 13-0.

The Tigers finished the season with two wins.  The first was a 13-7 win against North. The second was a 6-0 win against Washburn.

South finished the season with a 3-3 conference record and 3-5 overall.  They tied for third place with Edison. 

Coach Webert was assisted by Levain Carter, who had been with him all three years he has been head coach.  There were also six new assistant coached: Mr. Carlisle, Steve Haney, Al Howard, Mr. L. Taylor, Mr. Vossen and Mike Wurzer.
