1894.  One hundred years ago, South High School took the field for the first time as a football team.  This was the first sport played at South.  Now, 100 years later, the Tiger football program was going strong.

With the beginning of a new season, coaches look to the seniors for leadership.  The problem this year was that there were only six returning seniors to provide that leadership.  Because of the lack of experience, the team was pick to be near the bottom of the standings. 

South opened the season against North.  The Polars were one of the favorites in the conference.  They showed why with a tough defense and a hard working offense.  The Tigers lost 22-0.

Arch-rival Roosevelt was the next opponent.  South scored in this game, but not enough to win.  The Teddies won 22-9.

South and Henry played a competitive game.  Both teams had chances but the defense always seemed to rise to the occasion.  In the end, Henry won 12-6.

South played their Homecoming game next against a very tough non-conference opponent, Eagan.  The Tigers were never in the game and Eagan won 45-7.

South returned to conference play against the Lakers.  Southwest shut out the Tigers en route to a 12-0 win.

Edison continued the Tigers’ rough season.  The Tommies play well and doubled the Tigers’ score, 26-13.

The final game of the conference season was against Washburn.  South scored a season-high 14 points, but still did not win.  The Millers took the game 37-14.

In the last regular season game, the Tigers’ opponent in the Twin City Crossover series was St. Paul Humboldt.  This was South’s closest game of the season, but the Tigers still fell, 12-7.

In the Region playoffs, South faced Minneapolis conference champion Edison.  The Tommies completely destroyed the Tigers, 50-0.

South finished with a 0-6 conference record and a 0-9 overall record.  The team finished in last place in the conference.

Head Coach Al Howard finished his seventh season as the Tiger leader.  He was assisted by S. Bakkion, Steve Haney, Tony Stewart and Jay Roland.
