SPOKANE, Wash. -

Dave Hughes is in just his third season as head coach of the Lewis & Clark Tigers. But he is no stranger to the Greater Spokane League.

Hughes, a native of South Dakota, played college football at Black Hills State. He followed his wife when she got a job in the Spokane area. He started coaching at Rogers, and even coached current Pirates coach Matt Miethe.

Currently, Hughes says the Tigers have a good quarterback who is running the ball well. And the defense is strong and playing well.

Hughes encourages his players to not only play football but stay involved in other activities as well, from student government to band.
