GUYMON — It’s been a long time coming for the Guymon Tigers. About 687 days had passed since Guymon’s varsity football team last won a game. The program had been in a tailspin.

September 26, 2014

But for Homecoming this year, the Tigers will be facing one of the “weaker” teams in District 5A-2 in the Southeast Spartans. Head coach Mike Taylor just hopes the distractions surrounding Homecoming won’t cause his team to lose focus as the Tigers try to get their first win since the final game of 2012 and Taylor’s first as a head coach.

September 10, 2014

GUYMON — For the Guymon Tigers, last week’s 31-22 setback at Hugoton was
