 2016 Preview 

       Grissom finished the 2015 season with a disappointing 0-10 record. Last year Grissom finished eighth in Class 7A region four with a 0-7 region record and failed to qualify for the playoffs.

       No team at Grissom ever lost more games in a season than the ten they lost last year. The Tigers have not qualified for the playoffs since the 2004 season and would love to end that streak this year. The Tigers last playoff victory came during the 2000 season. They would love to break through this year with a post season win.

       The offense struggled putting points on the score board as Grissom averaged scoring just 5.3 points a game. The Tigers also struggled on the defensive side of the football as they found little success in stopping opposing offenses and allowed an average of 42.8 points a game.

       The Tigers would prefer to forget the past two seasons as they have finished with a 1-19 record. Since 2010, the Grissom football program has struggled with a record of 6-54.

       Over the past 25 seasons, Grissom has managed to compile a record of 90-170. Their 35.0% winning percentage ranks 29th in Class 7A and 319th in the AHSAA. Their last winning season was 2005.

       The Tigers are led by head coach Eddie Stewart who is entering his third season at the helm. He has compiled a record of 1-19 over the past two seasons at Grissom. The Tigers have yet to reach the playoffs under his direction. They have not won a region crown with Coach Stewart.

       Coach Stewart's overall record as a head football coach in two season stands at 1-19 (5.0%).

       The Grissom Tigers will play in Class 7A region four during the 2016 season.

       The Tigers enter the 2016 season in the middle of a 10 game losing streak. They would like nothing better than to end the string of losses early in the season.

       This season, the Tigers will be a long shot for one of the four playoff spots in region four. After not winning a single game last year, the goal at Grissom will be to simply win some games.

       The Tigers open the 2016 season on the road against non-region opponent Arab on Friday, August 19 at Arab Stadium. Last year the Arab Arabian Knights finished with an overall record of 1-9 and in sixth place in Class 6A region seven. The Arabian Knights closed out the regular season with a loss to Moody by a score of 21-7.

       Grissom and Arab have met a total of 10 times on the football field. The Tigers have a 5-5-0 record against the Arabian Knights. They last met in 1995 with Grissom winning by a score of 24-7.
