After defeating Kentwood 17-14 at home on Friday, November 6 in the semi-final of the LHSAA state playoffs, Many will travel to the Mercedes Benz Super Dome in New Orleans this weekend where they will take on Ferriday at 3:30 p.m. on December 13.

This New Orleans visit marks the first once since the 2014 defeat of Kinder for the football program’s first state championship. Since the Tigers have had great success by reaching the semi-finals of the playoffs multiple years running, but have not matched the success of that year.

Kentwood received the ball to open the semi-final game after Many deferred after winning the coin toss. Roy Miller made sure that the first Kangaroo possession of the game came to nothing, after dropping the quarterback after a slip in the back field before being joined by Tackett Curtis for another big tackle to put Kentwood even further back behind in yards.
