Meeks Returns as Head Coach at Mt Vernon; Tigers Travel to Rains Friday

With a 35 year career and 245 wins on the football field, Coach Dickey Meeks will once again lead the Mount Vernon Tigers into their first preseason football game against Emory Rains on Friday, August 28, 2015 in Emory.

The Tigers are returning to the field with 18 starters including Sophomore Wide Receiver Kevi Evans. Tiger fans will also be looking at Noah Craver and Patrick Hoffman to create plays on both sides of the ball. They will be assisted by returning offensive/defensive line starters Brady Watson and Austin Decker.

Looking to improve on a 1-9 record in 2014, the Tigers are hoping to begin another winning tradition to “restore the roar” in Mount Vernon. During his previous tenure at Mount Vernon, Meeks recorded a 42-26 record including two play-off runs. Meeks led Henderson to the 2010 3A Division 1 State Title and Chapel Hill to the 4A State Title in 1989.

Fans traveling to the game will notice a change in seating since stadium construction has been completed. Visitors will be sitting on the east side of the field instead of the west as in previous years.

Emory Rains is located approximately 2 miles west of Hwy 19 and Hwy 69 intersection.
