TIOGA, Texas (KXII) - The Tioga Bulldogs are moving up in classification, but following a playoff berth, they are ready for the challenge.
It was just three years ago that the Tioga Bulldogs were playing state semifinals in 6-man football. Since then.. they made the jump up to 2A division 2, where they made the playoffs last year. Now, they have moved up again to class 2A division one.
The inaugural season in a bigger class will be competitive. Tioga will join a district that also features Lindsay, Collinsville, Tom Bean and Trenton.
“Something drastic like (COVID-19) happens, I think it grabs a lot of our guys attention,” head coach Cody Patton said. “It made them very thankful to finally get back out, and let’s get after it and have fun.”
