   Posters for the seniors in football were hung along the rails, families and friends were cheering in the stands, and the varsity football team was playing their most intense game yet… held during their last home game and senior night.

    This game was the last varsity home game, as well as football’s senior night, and it was held on Oct. 5 at 6:30 p.m. against Christian High School.

    Leading with a score of 8-0 all the way through the third quarter, the varsity football team seemed to have the game in the bag.

    “We came in with good energy and positive attitudes, we just thought it was going to be another win for us,” stated senior Andre Smith.

    With three interceptions and an eight point lead, the team was optimistic that they were going to win the undefeated team, Christian High School.

    However, the fourth quarter came around and Christian scored three minutes into the quarter tying up the game.

    “When I saw that we tied, I knew we had to go harder than them and come with the same energy,” stated Smith.

    “When it was the third quarter I thought we were going to win, but during fourth quarter everything went downhill after the 15 yard penalty for holding and a fumble,” said senior Darron Singleton. “We got cheated because it wasn’t holding and there was a lot of unnecessary calls.”

    With a few minutes left in the game, Christian made another touchdown and won.

    This was the last home game for majority of the varsity team and although they lost, many players still felt as though they had won and knew that they played a good game.

    “I felt miserable after the game, but I didn’t feel like it was our last home game,” said senior Kenneth Chaney. “If we win and go to playoffs we might get home advantage, but we might not play Christian again.”

    It was a great game and the student section, with the help of the families in the stands, remained active and cheered their Tigers on. Pink powder, provided by ASB, was even thrown and items such as cow bells, pink cowboy hats, and hand clappers were passed out.
