Here they are: The 2014 Class C Football State Champions!!
The Tipton Tigers won the Gold Ball in the Championship Game against the Cherokee Chiefs, with 18 seconds left in the 3rd quarter! The 45 point mercy ruling went into effect with the ending score of 58-12. The game was played at Southwestern Oklahoma State College in Weatherford, OK.
And the celebrating began as a few thousand fans cheered on the Tigers!
Sophomore teammates, minus one.
Our oldest put a Go Pro camera on his brother's helmet for a few minutes!
Our oldest son has been broadcasting and commentating the Tipton Tiger football games for a few years. This was his view for the live audio broadcast. Pretty neat view!
Our four kiddos....
One last team breakout :(. That's a little sad!
The block party at the field ended with fireworks!
What an exciting season! What a ride for our Seniors!
They've gone to State four years in a row and come home with a silver ball, a GOLD BALL, a silver ball, AND ANOTHER GOLD BALL! They will always have special memories of their HS career! And we, the fans, look forward to more!
Congratulations, Tipton Tigers! We're proud of you!
