His name was Wayne Hart, and he led the 1916 Tigers on their first Nine game campaign. Results were not great, with a 3-6 overall mark. But, the annual victory over the Coots on Big Thursday in Cootlumbia was accomplished to the tune of 27-0, so all was not lost.
An oddity that would NEVER be repeated today. We actually faced The Citadel at a kind of "Halfway" neutral site, at, of all places, the Orangeburg County Fairgrounds! The MiniDawgs had a bite, taking down the Tigers 3-0. All results below.
