As one century ends, the Tigers played their 105th football season.  This year, the number of players increased because players and coaches were successful in convincing students who played only basketball or hockey to give football a try.  Head Coach Al Howard and assistant Antoine Harris pushed the new players and returners to become a cohesive team.

South opened the season against Henry.  Henry was the only team worse than the Tigers.  South won 32-12.  Unfortunately, this was South’s only win of the season.

Southwest was the first team to defeat the Tigers.  This game was relatively close, compared to the other losses.  The 14-0 score also was the first of three straight shutouts, and four for the season.

Edison travelled to Barnard Field for the South Homecoming festivities.  The Tommies put a major damper on the festivities, sending the partisan crowd home depressed by a 34-0 score.

Washburn racked up the most points of any opponent.  For the third straight game, the Tigers were shut out while losing to the Millers 39-0.

The Tigers finally scored against Roosevelt, but one touchdown would not win the game as the Teddies won 26-8.

South played a non-conference game against New Prague.  For the fourth time this season, the Tigers were shut out, losing 35-0.

North finished the conference season beating the Tigers 20-12.

In the Twin City Crossover game, St. Paul Humboldt won 22-8.

South’s season mercifully came to an end with only one Region game. It was against Eagan.  Eagan easily won 33-6.

South finished the year with a 1-5 conference record in sixth place.  Overall, the Tigers were 1-8.
