For the second time since 1990, the Broken Arrow Tigers defeated the Union Redskins, 33-10 on Aug. 24. The rivalry between the two football teams has been going on for almost a century. As expected, this victory was not easy. The team is proud of the outcome of the game and felt like it was long awaited.

“It felt great to win against Union,” senior Caleb Scott said. The town deserved it.”

Winning this game was not only a big win for the school, but also for the varsity football team.

“This win meant a lot to us – it gives us a confidence boost going into the beginning of the season,” senior Demeco Rowland said. 

The team has put in months of preparation, getting ready for the season. Watching film, running drills, and practicing plays were all part of their daily routine.

“We practiced hard every day and put in extra work when no one else was,” senior Logan Matthews said.

After the game, the emotions were high between both teams when the Tigers won by a huge margin.

“It felt so good to beat them finally, it was a very satisfying win,” Rowland said. “We are looking forward to playing them in the future.”

Many players are looking forward to the rest of the season, and have high hopes to bring home a state championship.

“We know that if we work as a team no one can beat us,” Matthews said. “I know we have what it takes to win a state championship.”

The Tigers look to face number-one-ranked Owasso Sept 7.
