Massillon Tigers Team News

All across Stark County — from Fairless to GlenOak and Massillon to McKinley — quarterbacks were on display in the first week of the high school football season.

MASSILLON  One position on defense where Massillon always seems to have one guy capable of making plays has been at safety. A look through the annals of Tiger football history bears that out.

PLAIN TWP.   In many respects the football programs at GlenOak and Massillon high schools couldn’t be any different. One team wears orange, the other green. One school is located in a city, the other a township. One is a tradition-rich nationally known program, the other is really just beginning to establish itself.

MASSILLON  It was expected the Massillon Tigers would be able to score some points this season. And they didn’t waste any time in showing just how easy they could change the scoreboard.

MASSILLON  One week down, 14 to go. That’s been the mantra of the Massillon Tigers — “15 Weeks” — since their offseason workouts began.

This is Massillon. This is where football reigns king 365 days a year — 366 days if it’s a leap year.

The number of the day in Massillon is 15.

As in, 15 weeks.
