Cheer on MUHS football as they bus to the title game

Throw back to 2015, the Tiger’s last run for the championship. Will you be making signs to cheer on Middlebury this Saturday? Post them on the Tiger Youth Football Clinic Facebook page and get the adrenaline flowing.

The Middlebury Union High School Tiger football team is gearing up for Saturday’s Division I championship game in Rutland and supporters of the team are planning a big send off.

A Facebook group called Tiger Youth Football Clinic is reporting and organized effort to bring MUHS sports fans out to Route 7 to give the team a big sendoff. The idea is to post fans holding signs and cheering at seven points along the highway near the start of the team’s journey to the big game.

Here’s what Tiger Youth Football Clinic posted about the “Cheer for the Tiger Bus!” effort:

Bring posters & your Tiger Pride to cheer on the bus on its way to the championship game!
Tigers are leaving the high school between 1:45 and 2 p.m. this Saturday, Nov. 12, so you are encouraged to be at your cheer spot by 1:45.

Locations are:

  1. MUHS, led by the high school tailgating team
    2. Countryside Carpet and Paint
    3. G Stone Motors
    4. Woodware
    5. A&W Restaurant
    6. Robinson Trucking (just south of the Nop farm)
    7. Gorilla (the big statue in front of Pioneer Auto in Leicester)

The Tigers earned their way to a berth in the final vs. CVU by defeating Burr & Burton in Manchester last Saturday.

Tiger Youth Football Clinic posted a great photo of MUHS fans cheering on Tiger football back in 2015 when the team was on its way to a title game.

Middlebury will take on the No. 1 Champlain Valley Union this Saturday at 5 p.m. at Rutland High School.

Go Tigers!
