"This past season Woodsmall rushed for 2,123 yards and 27 touchdowns," reports Terre Haute television station WTWO. "Woodsmall leaves the T-Bird's as the school's all-time leading rusher."

Zach Clapp was named the winner of the Indiana High School Athletic Association's Phil N. Eskew Mental Attitude Award in Class A football. The award is presented annually to a senior participant in the state finals who was nominated by his principal and coach and has demonstrated excellence in mental attitude, scholarship, leadership and athletic ability. Last fall, Clapp gained 1,611 yards on 218 carries (7.39 average) and scored 20 touchdowns.

Coach Matt Walker and the Tigers open their 2008 season on September 13 versus Anderson College, which will be Community Day at Blackstock Stadium. Access the schedule here, and visit the team online.
