After finishing 2013 at 9-2 and winning the final NCC football championship, the Galion Tigers have opened preseason drills at Heise Park in preparation for the upcoming season. One of the biggest concerns for 8th year head coach Chris Hawkins coming in to camp was who would replace the graduated Dareian Watkins at quarterback. As camp swings into it's second week, Hawkins says right now three players have a shot at the position and whoever preforms best in the upcoming scrimmages will get the job.

Two players Hawkins will lean on in 2014 will be offensive and defensive lineman Deaken McCoy and wide receiver, defensive back Cario Davison. Galion will also begin play in the Red Division of the MOAC this fall, their third conference in the last four years after just three seasons in the NCC and 66 in the NOL. The Tigers will need to be ready right from the start as they open with long time cross-county rival Bucyrus on August 29th at home. The two schools have been playing each other since 1897. Hawkins says it's good for the fans to open with a rival, but scary for him because your not quite sure what to expect with that first game under the lights. The Tigers won last season's contest with the Redmen 42-0.
