Seven Tigers to compete in final prep game at Fawcett Stadium

     MASSILLON--The date was November 1st, 2013. The Tigers of Massillon Washington High School were sitting at a good but otherwise perilous record of 7-2. After commencing the season ranked #1 in their new OHSAA divisional assignment of Division II, the Tigers absorbed competitive losses to Austintown Fitch and to defending Division III state kingpin Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary. 
Now with their season hanging on the cliff, a third undefeated team awaited the orange and black when the Canton McKinley Bulldogs played host to the Tigers in the 124th affair between these state powers at Fawcett Stadium. Canton McKinley shredded through the first nine games of the season and had their first 10-0 regular season in the crosshairs since 2005. Everything was tailor-made for them to reclaim the Victory Bell and hoist Massillon's season off the mountain. The set-up was hotly pristine for the hosts.
Massillon did not have any other option. It was either succeed and host a first-round playoff game at Paul Brown Tiger Stadium or fail and see their season shattered for the second time in three years inside the same stadium where their 2011 season concluded in a last-second 23-20 loss to the Bulldogs.
The Tigers played unarguably their finest game of the season. Riding a blocked field-goal return for a touchdown on the final play of the second quarter resulting in a 14-0 halftime lead, Massillon kept the vaunted Bulldogs offense chained for the most part save for an 80-yard touchdown run by Nikolas Ricks in the third quarter and never looked back in a resounding 34-7 triumph that extended the Tigers season by two weeks.
Six Tiger football players who were part of that ecstatic accomplishment will return to that same venue on Saturday, July 12th at 7.p.m in the CSE Federal Credit Union Repository East-West All-Star Game.
Beau Huffman, George Papacostas, Lyron Wilson, Chase Lash, Reed Fichter, Alex Dailey, and Leslie Dudley will represent the Massillon program. Those six athletes are a vital reason as to why the Tigers finished the season with an 8-3 record, no win more vital than against Canton McKinley to retain the Victory Bell along with the blocked field goal by Marcus Whitfield and then Dailey's recovery of the ball and running all the way to the end zone, much to the shock of the Canton McKinley faithful.
In their four years as Tigers under the tutelage of Jason Hall, these men compiled a record of 33-12 and three wins in five tries against Canton McKinley.
After July 12th at 10 p.m., these men will embark on the next level of their lives. Some of these men will compete collegiately or will not wear a football jersey again. They grew up with a miniature football in their cribs and were introduced to Massillon football by watching young adult men before them etch their name in the program as Tigers and waited patiently before their turn came to sport the orange and black.
Regardless of what happens, they represented not just the Massillon program with honor but their families as well. This much can be added. What happened on November 1st, no one will ever subtract that accolade from these men who walked into Fawcett Stadium with a win on their minds against Canton McKinley, departed with a victory and will look to help the West All-Stars depart with a victory against the East All-Stars.Massillon's season was hanging in the balance on November 1st. Six men and their teammates made sure their season did not come to another ghastly end in Fawcett Stadium. 
Massillon fans can be proud of what these men accomplished on the field and are urged to see their Tiger athletes one final time before their sign off on their Massillon Tiger football careers.
