DCHS to Host Its First Ever State Football Play-Off Game

The DeKalb County Tigers will host their first ever state high school football play-off game Friday night, November 4th at 7:00 p.m. in Smithville.

The fourth seeded Tigers (8-2) will host Giles County (7-3), a fifth seed. The winner of that game will meet either East Hamilton (6-4) or Brainerd (5-5) in the second round on November 11.

WJLE will have LIVE coverage.

Tiger Coach Steve Trapp told WJLE Saturday that he is pleased that his team has accomplished one of its goals. "At the beginning of the season, we set goals each and every year. First and foremost we want to become a district champion. We fell short of that goal this year but our second goal is to get a playoff game at home and we've accomplished that so I'm really proud of the guys and the regular season that they gave to us even though we did not perform at our best in our final game. We've got to regroup and rebound and those guys will do that. The same guys that didn't execute very well Friday night against Livingston Academy are the same guys that gave us an 8-2 record so we're proud of them. We're going to get back to work this week. We're going to represent DeKalb County well for our first ever home play off game," said Coach Trapp
