As the DeKalb County Tigers’ football team hosted their second playoff game in as many seasons at John L. VanHooser Stadium, the Tigers also set two more milestones. With the 39-21 victory over the Sequoyah Chiefs Friday night, the Tigers enjoyed their first ever home playoff win and now have 10 wins in one season, for the first time in the program’s history.The Tiger offense once again rolled as they racked up 589 yard of total offense. The Tigers rushing attack found a groove as DeKalb ran the football 44 times for 305 yards.The Tigers wasted little time as they hit pay-dirt on their first possession when senior running back Chris Chapman banged his way across the goal line on a 1-yard run.
