After an off-season spent restructuring the club, the 2013 Baton Rouge Tigers Australian Rules football club is debuting our new month-long community-wide preseason event, the 30-Day Challenge before starting training in earnest in preparation for our first match, an away tilt against familiar foes, the Houston Lonestars.
After a long tenure as team president, dedicated clubman Roberto Guiseppi Montanaro stepped down to allow new growth in the team and to dedicate himself to breaking his 47 minute PR in the 5k.
Demonstrating the amount of work “Zulu” put into the club, it took a squadron of Tigers to replace him. The new leadership group:
Josh Cartmill — President
Neil Stebbing — Vice-President
Taylor Braud — Special Assistant to the Vice President
Keith Fleniken — social co-chair
Bluto Mahoney — social co-chair
Robert Montaro — treasurer (someone has to watch the accounts…)
Joe Roy has accepted the assistant coach position to aid current head coach Tyler Smith.
As always, the Tigers will accept anyone in the club throughout the season regardless of age or fitness level. You put in the time, and we’ll teach you how to play the most dynamic sport on planet Earth.
