Unbeaten Tigers honored on Saturday

By JEFF BYRD

The Straughn Pee Wee Football Club was honored Saturday night for winning the Tri-County Football Association championship.

The Tigers, under the direction of Head Coach Sandy McVay, finished the season with an unbeaten 8-0 record. The team also did not allow a single point to be scored.

“This was a very special team. This bunch touched our hearts this year,” McVay said.

After the team was introduced and given trophies, McVay remarked afterwards about the team’s unity.

“They played as a group. We didn’t have any real outstanding players.” McVay said.

The Tigers may be in a rebuilding mode next season as 20 of the team’s 28 players will move up to the Straughn junior varsity. Nine of the players pulled double duty by going both ways.

Team members honored include Shannon Hutto, Ronnie Butler, Eric Dalton, Chase Turner, Lance Myers, Anthony Kelly, Justin Odom, Danny Grantham, Cass Sasser, Hunter Norris, Alphonzo Greeley, Justin Savage, Cory Cowart, Malcom Jones, Jerrod Armstrong, Matthew Mallard, Ryan Cottle, Frank Carpetner, Jamie Straughn, Josh Page, Josh Cottle, Josh Winter, Brock Moore, Dustin Worthey, Matthew Daniels and Brent Hinds.

McVay’s coaching staff includes Jerry Myers, William McVay, Robin Hobbs and Cory McVay.

Three of Straughn’s toughest games came against teams from Covington County. The Tigers beat Andalusia 14-0, Florala 20-0 and Red Level 28-0.

“They were a very well-coached team,” said Andalusia Pee Wee Head Coach Vonnie Howard of the Tigers. “They had us pretty intimidated, but it was early in the season when we played them.”

In three seasons as the Head Coach of the Straughn Pee Wee Football Club, McVay has compiled an impressive record of 21-1-1 and two league titles.
