The 2005-2006 football season was a rebuilding year for the Tigers.  Many important players from last season were lost to graduation.  According to the 2006 South Yearbook, Head Coach Lenny Sedlock kept reminding the players that there was a lot of football left to be played.

South opened the season traveling north to Cambridge for their first game, a non-conference contest.  Cambridge came out and scored, putting the Tigers at a default from the start.  This kept going until the final horn.  When it was all over, the Tigers fell 48-10.

Four-time defending conference champions Washburn was next on the agenda.  The Millers took care of the Tigers easily 36-8.

Against, Southwest, the Tigers played sound offense and their defense put together a strong game.  South won 24-15.

The next four conference games were all losses.  Henry doubled up the Tigers 28-14.  North did the same, 24-12.  Roosevelt exacted revenge for last year’s loss, winning 26-8.  Edison, who hosted the Tigers for their Homecoming, shut out the Tigers 13-0.

The last game of the season was the Twin City Crossover game, against St. Paul Humboldt.  Everyone expected the Tigers to be blown out.  South, however, did not listen to the critics.  The final was a 30-0 blowout, but it was the Tigers who won!

South finished the conference season 1-5, tied with Southwest for last place.  Overall, the team was 2-6.  Senior Alex Glasenapp was awarded with a spot on the All-Conference squad.
