Athletic Director’s Message

            Travis Smith, Ed.S
              Athletic Director

Welcome, DC Nation, to the home of your Douglas County Tigers.  At Douglas County High School, we place tremendous value in the phrase “Tiger Pride”.  We believe that participating in athletic competition not only builds character, it also helps to establish a sense of “Tiger Pride” for all of our student-athletes and those who support them.

The mission of our athletic department is to use athletics as a tool to teach student-athletes the life skills needed to become productive citizens, both on & off the field of play.  Many of the lessons learned on the playing field today become important building blocks for the future of our student-athletes.  Our athletic program strives to promote and reinforce principles of good sportsmanship by focusing on five core values: Teamwork, Integrity, Greatness, Effort & Enthusiasm, Respect, and Sacrifice.  These five core values are what makes each of our student-athletes true T.I.G.E.R.S..  While our philosophy places high value on athletics, they are only one portion of our total educational program here at Douglas County High School.

The Douglas County High School Athletic Department is immensely grateful for all of the support you give to our excellent teams and would like to extend a heartfelt thank you for your continued support of our student-athletes.
