The 2014-2015 football season was one of sadness.  Most importantly, the lost one of its players during the summer.  Sha-kym Adams and a group of friends went swimming after football practice one hot day.  Adams drowned while swimming and enjoying himself with his friends and teammates.  He loved football and brought a positive attitude and easy going spirit to the difficult sport.  Football became an afterthought for the players, but they realized that Adams would not want them to quit. 

The second sadness would be the end of the Minneapolis City Conference in football.  In fact, all conference would cease playing and the teams would be assigned a district by the Minnesota State High School League.  The reason for this was because some teams could not find opponents to fill out their schedule. 

South opened the season against a tough Eden Prairie team.  The Eagles dominated the game winning 48-6.

South played tough against Henry in the conference opener, but the results were the same.  Henry won 44-20.

South scored 33 points against St. Paul Johnson, but the Governors won, scoring 42.

South recorded their first win of the season against Edison.  The Tommies were outplayed in a 48-6 game.

North played a complete game against the Tigers, shutting South out 35-0.

Washburn also beat the Tigers 26-18.  This was followed by a 26-14 win over Roosevelt and a slim 37-36 loss to Southwest.

In the Region 3AAAA tournament, South’s season came to an end as Richfield won 28-0.

South finished with a 2-4 record, tied with Roosevelt for fifth place.  Overall the Tigers were 2-7.  Anthony Hockett, Wyatt Peterson and Elerson Smith were named All-Conference players.

Coach Lenny Sedlock finished his 14th season as head coach. He passed Al Howard for the second longest-serving head coach in South history.  Only Lester Barnard, whom the South Football Field is named after, coach longer at 30 years.  Sedlock was assisted by Chris Barrett, Bryon Carter, Kabakus Clark, Andy Henderson, Rodney Lossow, Joe Morgan, and Ross Muellenberg.
