Many Tigers celebrate homecoming tonight with Winnfield visiting

The Many Tigers football team brings a four-game winning streak to kickoff tonight as the Winnfield Tigers will be the homecoming foe at John W. Curtis Stadium at Many High School.

Kickoff is 7 p.m.

Many is coming off a hard-fought 44-31 win at Red River last Friday to open district with a 1-0 record, raising the overall record to 4-1. The Tigers are currently 4th in the LHSAA class 2A power rankings.

Winnfield is trying to bounce back from a 40-12 loss at the hands of an explosive Avoyelles team last Friday. Winnfield is 14th in the power rankings, with an overall record of 3-2 and 0-2 in district.

The history of this rivalry goes back as far as anyone can remember. For many years Winnfield dominated this game but since 2012, the Tigers from Many have reversed the role and been on top ever since. Last year’s game was cancelled due to COVID protocols facing Winnfield.

Tiger award winners for the Red River game were led by running back Jeremiah James with the Game Ball. Trevor McLendon and Trent Williams earned the Sledgehammer and Hard Hat awards respectively.

A huge homecoming crowd is expected for this year’s game with a lot of alumni making the trip in from out of town to watch the Tigers in action. Fans are encouraged to get there early, tailgate, and enjoy the fireworks before the game.

Randy Bostian and Brad Ford will have the radio broadcast coverage on 99.9 KTEZ FM beginning at 6:25.
