Kevin Jefferies and community volunteer Brian Ball teamed up for a 5th year for a KETR Game of the Week and for the Commerce Tigers on the road facing a very strong Farmersville Fightin' Farmers. While the Farmers did take the win, this clip follows Commerce in the 3rd quarter as the Tigers proved that they showed up to play and would be no push overs. 

Also involved with the broadcast were DJVK (Vamsi Kalakuntla) and TBFNSP hosts E.A. & Eric with volunteers and staff bringing regional score updates throughout the game.

Long-time voices for the Commerce Tigers, John Mark Dempsey and Kevin Jefferies followed the Tigers through a down season, but one highlight was Homecoming, where the Tigers battled the Edgewood Bulldogs in an exciting game that really heated up in the 3rd quarter. The Tigers would eventually take the lead and the win with less than a minute left in the game. This clip highlights the Tigers in the 3rd quarter as they began to turn up the heat.

KETR sports broadcasters Brock Callaway and Charlie Chitwood joined other station staff in receiving TAPB awards this year.
