The season opener for John Tyler is Friday night at home, and we bet the crowd will be big at Rose Stadium. Fans have been waiting 9 months for the new season to kick off. Ask any pregnant mom. That’s a long time!

John Tyler has been picked to do very well this season by our friends over at ETSN.FM.

ETSN says since 2009, the Lions are 35-8 and have advanced to at least the state-quarterfinal round each of the last three seasons. They made the semifinals last year.

High school football season is here, and it will be a great way to kick off the Labor Day weekend. Hit ETSN.FM for all the updates.
