Tiger Bowl: Football and Community Coming Together

Bookmark and Share

For the last five years the Harrisburg boosters have put on the Tiger Bowl, a series of events centered around the first home football game.

Head football coach Brandon White says the atmosphere of the first home game is great for players and the community alike.

"Our first home game is always the Tiger Bowl, it's a great atmosphere, it's great for all the community members, fans and players," said White.

Students say that a good tiger football team and a great opponent in rival Lennox make this year’s game fun.

Senior volleyball player Brittany Blakney is not only looking forward to her volleyball game earlier in the day but also getting ready with her friends and going to cheer on her team.

"Our guys are pretty good this year. We all have a lot of fun. It's fun to be at the games and watch and cheer them on," said Blakney.

Former football player and junior Dalton Allen says that while he enjoyed playing on the field, it is just as fun in the stands.

"It's a lot of fun to be in the stands. The atmosphere is great. It's a fun night," he said.

Even though football may be the main event, this Tiger Bowl is for all ages. Inflatables will be set up for children in the Athletic Complex, and Burger King will be giving out Whopper Juniors.

Other activities include a 5K road race and 1 mile kid's fun run starting at 9 a.m., football and cheer camp from 1:30 p.m to 3:30 p.m. and fireworks following the football game. More information can be found here.
