Ringgold High School will play its five home football games at Finley Stadium this season, it was announced today at the Stadium Corp. board meeting.

The Tigers lost their scoreboard, several light poles and suffered damage to their concession area during the April 27 series of tornados. Ringgold will be able to play four of its five home games on a Friday, with the exception being a Thursday night game with Cartersville on Sept. 15.

"That's awesome," Stadium Corp. board member Ryan Crimmins said. "Anything we can do to help them is great."
