The1B state champion Odessa Tiger football team and the Odessa cheer squad are all smiles following the team's 63-12 defeat of ACH last Saturday. Back: Pilot Weishaar, Joshua Clark, Brady Walter, Theron Schlomer, Lane Lobe, Bradly Singer, Colton Messer, Daeton Deife, Chase Kissler, Drew Hardung, Jordyn Cooper, Hayden Miller. Middle: Jaden Hunt, Josie Westmoreland, Ireland Luiten. Front: Keith Strebeck, Jakob Starkel, Tim DeWulf, Sonjya Jensen, Katherine Kok, Julie Lovvik. Other team members unavailable for the picture were Marcus King, Camden Weber, Ryan Melgren, Jett Nelson.

Let's roll out the red carpet and start the ticker tape parade. The Odessa Tigers completed a perfect season, 14-0, after their win Saturday afternoon against Almira-Coulee-Hartline, 63 to 12.

A little credit must be given to ACH for keeping the turnovers coming, it was almost like a light brunch, there were so many. Which in turn kept the ball in the Tigers' hands and made for a record breaking game, with 40 points in the first quarter.

Odessa head football coach Jeff Nelson, center, screams with joy after his team's big win.

Marcus King ended the game with 224 yards rushing and 4 touchdowns. He had 3 touchdowns in the first quarter alone.

For the season the Tigers had 995 points, averaging 71.1points each game. Making this a really pleasurable season to watch. Top scorers on the season are Marcus King with 298, Josh Clark with 142, Pilot Weishaar with 130, Tim DeWulf with 70, Brady Walter with 54 and Jakob Starkel with 52.

The Tiger defense is what keeps the other team from scoring though and on the season this streak had a total of 553 tackles, making them number 5 on the season for tackles. Crescent was number 1 with a total of 751 on the season.

All in all, this season has been a pleasure to watch. I look forward to a fantastic basketball season and another exciting football season in 2019.
