Tiger football practice starts August 3

With the UIL’s ruling last week that 3A football teams could proceed with their original start date of Aug. 3, Mount Vernon Tigers players and coaches are ready to take the field to prepare for the 2020 season.

Head Coach Art Briles said he liked the students coming back to school early on Aug. 6 for the fall semester and it would help get everyone back to a normal routine. See the July 30 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for more information about the upcoming season.
