Troup Tigers' 1973 State Championship Team to be honored this Friday
Tyler — They won it all 40 years ago.
Time to honor them again.
The 1973 state champion Troup Tigers will be honored at halftime of Friday night's Troup game.
Eugene Toole blocked two extra points in the semifinal that season.
Troup edged Falls City in that thriller, 21-20, to set up the Tigers' championship game the following week.
How does it feel 40 years later?
"We had good leadership from our captains and seniors," Toole told KETK. "It was an awesome time in my life. I'll remember it forever."
