Will Tenaha Tigers be an unstoppable force this season?

Tigers return from run at state championship with new coach Greg Jenkins at the helm

Since the 2011 season, Tenaha’s football program has been a dominant force on the gridiron, and in the upcoming 2018 season, things should be no different.

In their 2017 campaign, the Tenaha Tigers made a deep push into the playoffs. As a matter of fact, that post-season push led the Tigers all the way to the state championship game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

Unfortunately for Tenaha, their championship hopes were cut short when they fell in the title game against Muenster 27-20. This marked the only blemish on an otherwise undefeated season.

Newly appointed Athletic Director and Head Football Coach, Greg Jenkins fully expects to compete for a district championship, and beyond that he has his sights on a state title.

“The community of Tenaha will always have high expectations of this program. It doesn’t matter who holds or plays what position, it is a joint effort,” Jenkins said. “On paper our offensive and defensive lines have the potential to be an unstoppable force, but they have to get out there and seriously play.”
