Tigers no longer on Duck schedule

Taylor coach cites desire to play larger schools

So much for tradition. Taylor coach Rusty Purser has informed Rockdale Coach Jeff Miller that the Ducks are no longer interested in facing the Tigers on the football field.

With the University Interscholastic League’s bi-annual realignment on the schedule for Feb. 1, coaches are scrambling to fill up schedules.

The stoppage puts an end to a rival game where Rockdale and Taylor have played 85 times.

The only other school Rockdale has faced more often is Cameron, which have played 90 times. The two schools first met on the gridiron in 1912.
