Neil Weiner does not shy away from competing at the highest level even though his team plays in Class 2A. The veteran head coach is determined to always have his team playoff ready and has not deterred away from that mindset heading into 2022. The Tigers scrimmage Class 4A Brusly, jamboree with defending Division I champs Catholic of Baton Rouge, open the regular season with Class 3A foe Parkview and will compete against Class 5A's 5A Live Oak as well as defending Division IV champion Southern Lab.
There is no doubt that if Dunham can run through the gauntlet unscathed and more experienced as district play approaches, the team will be more than ready for a competitive run deep into November.
The strength of this year's team resides on the defensive and offensive fronts. Four of five offensive linemen return from last season while all starting defensive linemen and linebackers return from a year with three other linemen that rotated with the starters last year. Defensively the Tigers possess very little experience in the secondary with the exception of their best overall player, Colin Boldt.
Offensively, Dunham will have to rely on technique and execution with six starters lost to graduation. Boldt returns in the backfield but will need plenty of help as he works both ways while new transfer quarterback Jackson House takes over under center after leading his high school to a Kansas high school state title.
In district play, the Tigers host Northeast, Episcopal and Capitol and will travel to East Feliciana and Baker.
