The Rush City High School football team has launched the Tiger Buddy program for the 2013 varsity season.

Under the program, students in kindergarten through sixth grade “adopt” a varsity football player for each home game of the season. It’s an opportunity for pictures, autographs, socialization, tailgating — all within the setting of small town, Mid-American football.

Information will be sent home with students prior to the next regular season home game, which is Friday, Sept. 20 against East Central.
