A 98 year tradition continues Friday night, September 2, 2022 as the Magee Trojans meet the Mendenhall Tigers at Tiger Field beginning at 7:30.

The long standing tradition of the two teams playing brings stories from all ages.

When I was in high school, a student from Magee would run the football to Mendenhall!  The runner would enter the field and present the ball to the referees. 

From burning the Tiger to burying the Tiger, the week was spirit filled.

Please feel free to email me your “Trojan-Tiger” stories.
