LaSalle Tigers are prepped for a return trip to Sulphur

By Greg Jones

The LaSalle Tigers are working hard knowing the bull’s eye is squarely on their backs. All the hype surrounding a State Championship comes with other teams around the state using the Tigers season from last year as a measuring stick for their own program.

This means every time the Tigers take the field they are the hunted team, because everyone wants to dethrone a champion.

The last couple of weeks Mother Nature has not played nice as the Tigers are several games behind on the schedule due to rain. The Tigers have managed to get in 6 games thus far and have posted a 4-2 record.
