Football

Washington High School is nationally famous for its high school football, which is featured in the film Go Tigers!. The team, which began play in 1894, has compiled a record of 786 wins, 234 losses, and 35 ties through the end of the 2008 season. The Tigers play their home games at Paul Brown Tiger Stadium (seating capacity: 18,000; artificial turf); a live tiger cub named "Obie" is on the sidelines for each home game. The team's name was adopted in 1924, and was named after a professional team known as the Massillon Tigers, one of the top teams in professional football in the early 1900s. So strong is the tradition and history, that baby boys at Massillon's hospital are given a miniature football at birth. Massillon's arch rival is Canton McKinley High School. Their meeting is the final game of the regular season each year. It is the only high school contest in America to feature odds in Las Vegasmarker.
