HOLLIDAYSBURG, Pa. - The offseason had a very bitter taste for the guys from Hollidaysburg.
They just barely missed out on the postseason with a week 10 loss to Indiana.
The Golden Tigers biggest loss came on their line with the departure of Zach Simpson.
But they have 6 starters returning on defense and 7 coming back on the offensive side of the ball.
And with a lot of experienced younger guys coming back, the Tigers think the postseason is within their reach.
"We got a lot stronger. Everyone improved from last year. I don't think anyone fell behind or didn't improve at all. I think we're gonna be good, " says senior Nate Eckard.
The Golden Tigers kick off the season on the road at Armstrong.
