Quote from the Coach
“The Howland Tigers will have their largest senior class in years. All of them can play. This gives the Tigers a chance to be competitive. This year’s schedule again has nine playoff history teams. Early road games against powerful Lakeview and state contender Warren G. Harding will be key matchups.”
