A message from the Massillon Tiger Booster Club: Due to senior night at this week’s game, Thursday, Oct. 13 against Warren Harding and the early start time due the game being televised the pregame ceremonies honoring past teams has been moved to half time. Players who played on 1941, 51, 61, 71, 81, 91 and 2001 can gather at the indoor facility during the first half of the game. I’m contacting you to let you know of the event and seeing if you would be able to attend the gathering. I’m also asking if you know how to contact any other players on the team that you would either contact them for me or send me contact information.
The only thing that Ryne Moore didn't do was turn the lights off at PBTS when he left on Friday night. Moore did it all on the ground carrying the ball 34 times for 174 yards and 3 TDS. Moore is a special player and substitutes his size with great vision, patience, and speed. Watching Moore jitterbug his way into the open has become a very enjoyable site for the Tigers and Tiger fans alike.
The Tigers faced a tough test tonight. On the surface they had not played a complete game all season and the offense had not shown much more than a faded glimmer of explosiveness. Secondly, they were facing a team who throws rules to the wind and disbanded themselves from the Delaware High School Athletic Association in order to openly bring in any player they wish. Red Lion wants to gain National Recognition and by playing a national schedule their name is being heard.
Tonight Red Lion ran into a team that has been nationally recognized for many decades and the Tigers were not about to Let Red Lin springboard they super stardom at the Tigers expense.
The Tigers came out as ready to play as I have seen them in a few years. The defense played another GREAT game and the tackling tonight was SUPERB. Watchzing 11 guys swarm to the ball like they do makes you have a great feeling about this defenses chances against any team. The Tiger defense 1 st team again yielded 7 points and they continue to be the staple of this Tiger team.
The tigers scored early and often in the first half and made very few to no mistakes. Te offensive line protected extremely well and the play calling and execution of said plays was right on point. mcdaniels did a nice job of mixing the pass an the run. Tonight we saw a coming of age for this Tiger offense. The mixing in of Brody Tonn at the QB team really changes the speed ofmthe game and creates a great weapon.
The tigers need to keep the intensity for the next few weeks as they will be tested by Warren, @ Steubenville and @ McKinley.
Tigers got some playoff help tonight with Jackson losing to Boardman.

It was a dismal, cold, rainy day all day on Friday and it appeared that much of the same would continue for the game Friday night against Massillon and Akron Hoban. The anticipation of this game on the schedule was bigger than what ultimately developed. Better weather and a better record on the part of Akron Hoban (0-5) would have made this game much more interesting. Only about 1500-2000 people were in attendance for the game held at Infocision Stadium on the campus of the University of Akron. There was no need really for this game to be held at this large of a venue.
Massillon's defense again showed a bend but don't break attitude on the field tonight. Hoban threw a lot of different looks at the Tigers, but in the end the Tigers would prevail 38-16 and forcing five Hoban turnovers. Hoban had a heck of a time holding on to the ball tonight and five turnovers could have been eight very easily. A dropped INT early in the first half and two fumbles that the Tigers couldn't get their hands on. The Tigers defense will have their hands full next week with what expects to be a VERY good Red Lion (DE) team.
The Tigers offense got on the board early, but in what has become regularity in the 2011 season, squandered very significant opportunities. Following a blocked Hoban punt (Eric Copeland) deep in their own territory the Tigers kept the ball on the ground and punched in a TD carried by Alex Winters. The Tigers would take an early 7-0 lead. That would be all of the scoring that the Tigers would do in the first quarter.
In the second quarter the Tigers would take some chance to try and get some momentum. A fake punt conversion by Brody Tonn would be a drive that eventually stalled due to a fumble which gave the ball back to Hoban. Hoban would take advantage of that opportunity and drive the ball nearly 70 yards into the end zone tying the score at 7-7.
The Tiger Defense would force a turnover near the end of the half that should have resulted in the TD by Garrett Krieger, but was called back on a holding call at the 3 yard line. The Tigers would go backwards on successive plays and the end result was a 46 yard field goal by Andrew David. David's kick was true and the Tigers lead 10-7 going into half time.
In the third quarter the Tigers would blow the door open and would finally capitalize on the opportunities from turnovers. The Tigers took the opening possession of the second half down the field quickly and Kempt would find Huffman for a 2 yard pass in the middle of the end zone for the TD. Tigers lead 17-7.
The ensuing kick off resulted in a fumble by Hoban giving the Tigers great field position, but a missed 41 yard FG would end the drive after just 4 plays.
The turnover machine of Hoban kept giving the Tigers more opportunities. 2 plays following the missed FG Hoban would fumble again and the Tigers this time would punch it into the end zone. 4 plays following the fumble Brody Tonn found pay dirt and gave the Tigers a 24-7 lead. The Tigers were now rolling. The Tigers successfully converted an onside kick following this TD, but the end result of the drive was a punt.
The Tigers would later punch in a TD run of 55 yards by Ryne Moore and a 6 yard TD run by Jason Boykins while Hoban added a FG and a TD late in the contest. Final score Tigers 38 Hoban 16.
The Tigers will face a tough test this week against Delaware Red Lion Christian Academy. Watch for my Know Your Opponent coverage of Red Lion sometime this weekend.
Go Tigers! Beat Red Lion!!
