Tigers to scrimmage in St’boro Friday

The Tigers will return to the gridiron this Friday to kick off the 2021 football season.

Metter will travel to Statesboro on Friday to face off against the Statesboro High School Blue Devils.

Tickets will be $7 each and must be purchased on GoFan. Statesboro High School does not accept cash at the gate.

GoFan posters and an outdoor WiFi login will be posted at the entrance gate for those who wish to purchase tickets upon arrival. Or tickets can be purchased in advance at https://gofan.com/app/school/GA23136 .

This year’s Metter Tigers are coming off of a stellar season, with 13 wins for the first time in school history. After soundly defeating all opponents in regular season play, Metter marched deep into the playoffs, advancing to the semi-final round of the playoffs for just the fifth time in school history. Metter was ranked number one in the state for nine consecutive weeks. 

The Tigers were just one win away from playing in the championship game in 2020, but Irwin County, the defending 2019 and eventual 2020 state champs, ended Metter’s hopes for a title.

This year, the Tigers return a powerful line-up of players who are battle-proven and ready for the new season.

Friday’s kick-off is set for 7:30 p.m.
