Friday night lights are shining bright for the 2013 Bearcats. The intensity level is through the roof. It is great to be a part of the excitement.
As a parent, it is always mixed emotions as your child takes the field. There is such a sense of pride and gratification to see your child so fired up and intense about something however, deep down suppressed within, lies the fear of injury. You donâ€™t often think about it, however you know it exists and youâ€™re reminded with each injury-timeout.
Come out and support the team tonight as they play against the Atoka Wampus Cats in the Homecoming game.
Homecoming activities begin at 7:00 pm with kickoff at 7:30 pm.
