Tigers are looking to improve from last season

ALCONA, Mich. — Rebuilding is always going to have its ups and downs. Last year, rebuilding was more on the downside for the Alcona Tigers as they finished with a record of (1-8). This year however, they look to make adjustments as they push for a better season.

“I think we’re going to comeback healthier and we’re going to work harder,” said Zach Stephenson.

With a lot of returning players from last year to this years squad, Head Coach Jason Somers believes that last years season will help the program move forward in a positive way.

“The guys got their feet wet last year,” said Somers. “This year, they’re coming in with the right attitude. We hope to pick up some more wins and keep building the winning culture here.”

Senior running back Mason Clark has been through the ups and downs with this program. This year, he’s willing to do anything to help the team out as much as possible.

“My focus is to just do anything to make the team better,” said Mason Clark. “If I run the ball, I run the ball. If I don’t run the ball, I have to make sure I do everything I can.”

No matter what the outcome is for the Tigers, they’re all in this together.

“We’re so close together,” said Stephenson. “We always talk to each other.”

Alcona kicks off their regular season Aug. 29 as they travel to Tawas to take on the Braves. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
