It was nearly a perfect season in 2014. Only a season-ending loss to Dinuba in the Division II Central Section playoffs, kept the Tigers’ hands off the section championship trophy. As it is, Lemoore, boasting a dazzling display of talent, fell to 11-1 on the season, but had an impressive 11-game winning streak which culminated with a convincing victory over Hanford in the West Yosemite League final.

The Tigers began their march to another perfect regular season with a convincing 56-7 win over Monache Thursday night, a game in which the Tigers operated on all cylinders on defense and offense.

Lemoore will face perhaps its biggest test of the season this Friday when the Tigers travel to Lamonica Stadium for a matchup with Clovis, the top-ranked team in the Central Section. 

The Tigers just may well challenge for the title again thanks to returning starters like Allen Perryman, A.J. Bow, Gerald Campbell, and Trey Perryman. The Tigers do in fact have the makings of another championship. Allen Perryman had a pair of touchdowns and an interception return for a TD to lead Lemoore.

Perryman, a WYL all-leaguer, was also a member of the junior all-state football team. He was an important cog in the Tigers secondary and a no-nonsense receiver who could catch just about anything thrown at him.

The Tigers again have a formidable schedule. On Sept. 4 they stay on the road with a game against Clovis High, and they finally return home the following week against Buchanan High School.

Sanger round out the pre-season before Lemoore gets down to WYL play with a Sept. 25 game against Redwood in Tiger Stadium.
