The annual gathering of the Tribe was held Thursday, Aug. 23, as the second annual Mohawk Football Fall Kick-off was held adjacent to the athletic complex. Serving as the keynote speaker for the evening was Dr. Phil Daffron, a product of the Piggott School System and former Mohawk star. Later, he went to Arkansas Tech where he was an outstanding player until injury hampered his career. Daffron was also an excellent scholar, and gained his Masters degree and later completed veterinary school. He has operated his own practice in Piggott since the 1980s.
