Send the Tigers to Tally!
On October 25th, your Palmetto Tigers will travel 301 miles northwest to take on the Tallahassee Lincoln Trojans in Tallahassee, Florida! As you can imagine taking a roster of over 50 players, coaches and support staff will require the support of our #OneTownOneTeam community – the #1 fans supporting the #1 team!
Wondering why Palmetto would take the trip to Tallahassee at such a great expense? Good question:
New FHSAA RPI Playoff System – The new system regarding post-season play is based off the strength of schedule and our opponents records. The stronger our schedule is and the more successful our opponents are – the higher playoff seed a team can receive. Scheduling a team like Tallahassee Lincoln has already paid off as Palmetto sits at #1 in the State in FHSAA RPI – regardless of classification.
Our “Tigers to Tally” Goal:
Our trip to Tallahassee will encompass the following expenses:
-Food (52 players + staff)
-Travel (2 charter buses + auxiliary support vans/trailers)
-Lodging (25+ hotel rooms)
In addition to our travel expenses, and due in large part to the extreme distance from Harllee Stadium, there has been a significant request for TigerVision to make the trip as well. TigerVision’s group of volunteers has made themselves available for the trip and broadcast – if we can meet our goal. You won’t want to miss watching your top-ranked Tigers on TigerVision!
