Undefeated in the 1959 season, the team's final home battle was fought on November 13, 1959, when they faced the Knoxville Central Bobcats in Tiger Stadium.  The November 13th issue of The Pensacola Journal featured an article "Pensacola High Favored to Rack Knoxville Central Tonight" as well as a column by Al Padgett, the Journal Sports Editor ("The Wise Ol' Al"), heaping praise on the team and Coach Scoggins, which ended with the following paragraph: "A lot of people are expected to turn out and pay tribute to a great football team and an equally outstanding coaching staff.  Let's hope Central doesn't spoil the whole thing."   Well we all know that they didn't!  The headline in the Sports section of the Journal the next morning was "Tigers Nail Down 21st Win, 27-0."  Our Principal, Mr. Lipscomb, wrote a letter to the Journal and staff thanking them for the articles about the team that appeared in the paper on November 13th.  Go HERE to read them all.
