  POTSDAM, NY -- (February 2, 2017) -- A recently-formed semi-professional football organization, the North Country Tigers, has been approved for team status in the Northeastern Football Alliance. The new North Country Tigers, based in Potsdam, NY, was one of four new teams accepted by the N.F.A. at its January 29th annual meeting held in Geneva, NY. The Tigers were the only new team that was not based in the Rochester area.

North Country will open its season on Saturday, June 10th, with an inaugural home game against the Southern Tier Diesel. All five regular-season Tiger home games will be played under the lights at the Potsdam High School turf football field, starting at 7:00 p.m. The Tigers will also have five road games against all other teams in the NFA’s Double A Division. Along with the Diesel, the Tigers’ other conference opponents include North Country regional rival Carthage Revolution, the Ithaca Warriors, the Charlotte Colonials and the Rochester Renegades. The Colonials and Renegades are also new to the Alliance this season.

The 2017 campaign will run from June 10th to August 26th, concluding with a home game vs. Ithaca. The Tigers have also been in contact with a West Coast team from Washington State that is interested in coming to Potsdam to fill a bye week in August. The Northern Football Alliance’s 2017 playoffs will begin on September 9th.

The Tigers will be sporting a bright, bold team look of orange, black and white uniforms, with an aggressive Tigers’ logo on the chest. Each helmet will also be embossed with a Tiger head logo.

The North Country Tigers was formed in the Fall 2016 by team owner Cody Jenne of Norwood, NY. Jenne is a 2016 graduate of SUNY Canton with a major in sports management. He is also a five-year staff member at North Country SportsNet.

“We are excited to bring semi-pro football back to the St. Lawrence Valley region,” said Jenne. “We reached out to players from St. Lawrence, Franklin and northern Jefferson counties, as well southeastern Ontario, Canada. To date, we have at least 53 players signed and committed to playing in our inaugural season.”

The first head coach for the Tigers is James Compeau of Massena, NY, who has past semi-pro coaching experience as defensive coordinator for the former St. Lawrence Valley Trailblazers and assistant coach of the now-defunct Massena Silver and Black. “We’re going to put in a really fast offense,” said Compeau. “It’s going to be more of a ‘run and shoot.’ We are going to be using a new tackle style, with fast linebackers and be very diverse.”

Windy DeRushia of Massena will serve as Compeau’s assistant coach and will be the first female assistant coach ever in the Northeastern Football Alliance. DeRushia has played professional women’s football on the offensive and defensive lines for the Montreal Blitz and the Carolina Queens. She has also served as assistant coach for the Massena Central School modified football team.
