After a 2020 pandemic-shortened 1-6 season, the Tigers have a new attitude. This year they had a 9-1 winning season and were in the postseason playoffs for the first time since 2013, when they lost a playoff game. They finished this season ranked 8th in Ohio and played 9th ranked Troy in a first playoff game. Troy scored the first touchdown, but the Tigers then scored 29 points for Withrow’s first playoff win in 102 years. Senior running back Ty’Aris Stevenson ran for 256 yards and a touchdown, while senior quarterback Antwonex Fant ran for 78 and a score and threw a touchdown to fellow senior Donsha Knox. Consistent with its season of four shutouts, the defense remained strong. The Tigers then played the No. 1 seed Piqua the following week but lost a close game 17-13 and finished the season 9-2.
