Tiger Football to scrimmage Simon Kenton Friday night
Tiger Football will open up their season Friday night at home against Simon Kenton at 7:30 in their first and only scrimmage of 2015. This will be the only home game of August, so make sure to get out to the game and support your Tigers. The Tigers will play next at home against Bowling Green on September 4th for Patriotic Night.
If you remember, last year the Simon Kenton-St. X Scrimmage was postponed to the following day. The reason for the postponement was unclear, but the Northern Kentucky Board of Education decided against having the Pioneers travel to Louisville on that Friday night. It may or may not have had something to do with the Louisville “Purge”.
“We always have to err on the side of caution in these types of events. Unfortunately, we can never take a risk or a gamble when we are talking about the safety of our students,” said Jessica Dykes with Simon Kenton High School.
This year’s scrimmage may not have that exciting of a backstory, but one on the field story line will be getting a lot of attention. Who will start at quarterback? AJ Breit and Desmond Ridder appear to be the front runners, but we will let you know who takes the opening snaps tomorrow night, as it happens.
Get out to the game and support your Tigers!
