Grand Rapids, MI (12/08/2022): DeWitt Panther.org would like to congratulate Tony Sigmon of Whitehall on being recognized as one of the top three coaches in the 2022 Associated Press Division 3-4 All-State Football Team. The Vikings finished the regular season 9-0 and won the West Michigan Conference Lakes Divsion with a 6-0 record. Whitehall lost to Grand Rapids South Christian 28-21 in the Divison 4 Regional Finals to finish the season 11-1. The Vikings stout defense only allowed 22 points in the conference.

Tony was the heart and soul of the 2001 DeWitt Panther team that finished 11-2 and lost to Chesaning in the Division 4 Semi-Finals. He was middle linebacker that registered a team leading 83 tackles and had 9 SMUKs as well as offensive guard. He went onto play and start at Alma College. He took over the Whitehall program in 2013 and his team finished 1-8 that season but in 2014 the Vikes went 9-3. He has made the playoffs 8 of his 10 seasons.
