Withrow Takes Pride in Historic Football Performance
The stripes of tiger pride are on full display for the Withrow University High School Varsity Football Team.
The team made school history this season by advancing to the OHSAA State Regional Finals Playoff Game for the first time. Despite falling short in a hard-fought battle against the Anderson Raptors with a final score of 49-28, the Tigers have much to celebrate for their incredible season.
With a commendable 12-2 record, the Withrow Tigers showcased their prowess on the field, securing the CMAC Championship title and leaving an indelible mark on the school's football legacy.
Head Coach Kali Jones expressed his pride in the team's performance throughout the season. "I'm really proud of this team," said Jones. "We executed at a high level, and their dedication and hard work have brought us to new heights."
One of the standout players for the Tigers this season was senior quarterback Luke Dunn, who concluded his high school football career with a school record of 2,586 passing yards and an impressive 36 touchdowns. Dunn's leadership and skill were crucial in guiding the team to their historic playoff run.
Wide Receiver Chris Henry Jr. also etched his name in the school's record books, setting a new season mark for the most receiving yards. Henry's contributions to the team's success were evident throughout the season, as he consistently made impactful plays on the field.
While the loss in the OHSAA State Regional Finals Playoff Game stings, it doesn't overshadow the Withrow Tigers' achievements this season and their hunger for next season.
