Many hosts trick or treaters

The Many Tigers lost an absolute heartbreaker to the Welsh Greyhounds 28-21 during the LHSAA 2A semifinal held on November 30 at John Curtis Tiger Stadium in Many.

The loss puts an end to the season which players, coaches, and local fans would end with a championship in the Super Dome this weekend.

The team put up an amazing 15-2 record, with its only losses were against a higher classification opponent, North Desoto, and Welsh, who also defeated the Tigers last year during the same leg of the playoffs.

Many kicked off to Welsh to start the game, and Austyn Benoit quickly put up a fiveyard rushing touchdown which had the Tigers trailing early by seven points.

Tobias Williams named Rising Star

Rising Star Tobias Williams II has lots of attitude...a good, positive attitude. He attributes it to the examples set for him by his family, his high school football coach, and his church family.

“I am a reflection of my family,” Tobias said. “It’s important to me that I set a good example for others.”

The oldest of five children, Tobias is the son of Tobias and Krisha Williams of Many. His mother teaches social studies and science at Many Junior High. His dad works on a land rig in West Texas.

Something happened in his family several years ago that made a lifelong impression on Tobias. He began seeing people, events, challenges and life differently. That’s because his maternal grandmother, Cloteal Polk of Natchitoches, moved in with Tobias’s family where she spent her last year of life.
