The Tigers elected new leadership at their recent season kickoff party at Ubee’s.
Chris Lemons was retained as captain of the side. Thomas Strickland assumed the responsibilities of president. Bert Milam has moved from treasurer to secretary. Cameron Walton has taken the responsibilities as treasurer.
The captain and officers constitute the selection committee and decide who will start each match and set the depth charge for substitutions. The coaches are advisory in this process.
More than any other sport, rugby requires strong leadership on the field. Coaches cannot help very much with the play during the match since there are no timeouts in rugby. The captain must make solid decisions during the match with regard to tactics and playing style. He must know that his 14 fellow players will heed his direction and that they will adjust as needed.
The coaches are thrilled with the selection of leaders this year. “I think we have some excellent talent at the top”, stated Coach Cole. “These leaders should significantly strengthen our team.”

Old Boys, Friends, Family and Fans – We need your support. Please join the Tiger Rugby 100 Club and be a person who contributes at least $100 annually to help the club. It is easy to contribute with Pay Pal… and if you are tight on funds, set it up to charge your card $10 per month. Everyone can handle that. Even Phil. Ha! Just kidding Phil. We are trying to get 100 folks to sign up, so everyone must be in. (I’m leaving Phil’s name until he signs up and then I am going to pick on someone else.)
Plus, sign up your Kroger Card with Tiger Rugby. This is free money. Kroger will give the Tigers money based on how many folks cards are signed up with the Tigers. A small portion of each purchase will be given to the Tigers. So, go to this Kroger page on this website and see how we can get free money from Kroger. Thanks for helping with this important initiative. Do not delay. Do this today.
