Defending NCC football Champion Galion will try to repeat last season's results when they finished at 9-2 in 2012 and advanced to the OHSAA post season. Coach Chris Hawkins starts his seventh season as coach of the Tigers and hopes that if the team is able to advance to week 11 they are able to make a run, not just have it be one-and-done. The Tigers lost 16 seniors from a season ago, but return 14 this season. In addition to Dareian Watkins, who has made a verbal commitment to Northwestern at quarterback, Hawkins believes the team is deep at the skill positions with the ability to go three deep in some cases.  After a scrimmage against Fredericktown, Hawkins saw more good than bad, but is still concerned about his defense saying it is behind the offense at this point. Across the offensive front, Hawkins says this line has good size and has the "potential" to be the best he has had at Galion, but they still have a ways to go. The Tigers will open the season on the road at Milford Center Fairbanks on August 30th, then have their home opener the following week against defending OCC co-champ Madison. The week two contest with the Rams at the Tigers will be the WMFD Game of the Week on Friday, September 6th.
