On Friday October 5, after the homecoming football game against Archbold was the changing of the stadium. The Tigers beat the Streaks 35-20 with a little ceremony afterwards. The ceremony was the changing from the Tiger Stadium to the Rex Lingruen Stadium.


This successful coach has led hard-nosed players to many victories and accomplishments under the lights on Friday nights. Lingruen’s biggest moments include a state championship in 1997, state runners-up in 1993 and in 1998, and two semifinal appearances in 1992, 1999, and 2000. With all of the blood, sweat, and tears this man has given to the community, it’s our turn to give back to him with such a great honor of having the community hangout be named after Rex Lingruen.
