Head Coach: Clayton George

District: 5-3A Division I

School colors: Purple, white

Mascot: Tigers

Stadium address: 501 Hwy 37 South, Mt. Vernon, TX 75457

2022 record: 9-3

Notes: The Mt. Vernon Tigers will be under new management in 2023. Clayton George comes over from Plano to replace Brad Willard as the new AD/HFC for the Tigers. The Tigers finished last season with a 9-3 record, and they were Area Finalists. Mt. Vernon returns 5 starters on offense and 6 starters on defense. Coach George says the biggest strength of the team this season will be the defense. The defense is spearheaded by 2 time All State LB Boone Morris. Coach George says offensively the biggest concern is replacing 2 time All State RB Makenzie McGill and QB Braden Bennet who was the 2021 3A Offensive player of the year. The Tigers have key receivers coming back to help lead the offense. Mitchell Nuziard had 1,135 yards receiving as a Junior. Nuziard will also handle some of the kick return duties on special teams as well. Boogie Mitchell returns at WR as well. Coach George describes him as “explosive with the ball in his hands.” Kam Doss will be back at DB as the leader of the secondary to help lead the defense alongside Morris.
