Mount Pleasant Tigers
Head Coach: Joe Cluley
District: 8-5A II
School Colors: Black, Gold
Stadium Address: 3220 North Edwards, Mt. Pleasant, TX 75456
2022 Record: 2-8
Notes: Head Coach Joe Cluley’s first season at Mount Pleasant is one to build off of after a 2-8 season. Only four starters from last year’s offense will be back for the Tigers in 2023. Eight defensive starters will make their return this year. Depth at some key positions will be an area of concern for the team going into 2023. Cluley does say that senior leadership and team buy-in will be a big strength for them this year.
Players to Watch: Mason McMinn – Starting Quarterback in a quarterback centric offense, has put on great weight this offseason and can run and throw extremely wel!
Dylan Bennett – WR – elite speed and extremely strong, game breaker with the ball in his hands
Johnathan Amieva – Started all 10 games a sophomore at Right tackle – will anchor our offensive line
Latristan Thompson – Cornerback – lockdown corner who followed our opponents best WR all year long, fantastic playmaker
Ryder Marshall – Defensive end, extremely physical and defensive MVP for us this past year – high motor
Antez Jeffery – Outside linebacker – Heart of the defense, big time playmaker and big hitter who will be able to drop into coverage or rush the passer
Gerardo Chavez – returning FG kicker will just be a sophomore, grew by leaps and bounds in his first year every playing football
