Gateway to the West

It takes a little bit of crazy to ride those bulls!

Is it spring yet?

Forget the glass slippers, this princess wears cleats.

Friday Night Lights… only memories

Witnessing the end of something or someone near and dear is always difficult and the demise of the Grant-Deuel High School football field is no different.  It’s the end of an era with no possibility of future high school football memories to be made…

It’s not that I’m such a die hard football fan, but I am a fan of community pride. Volunteers from the community and school would show up in droves to work the games in various capacities and, of course, pump up school spirit as cheerleaders and pep band members. Fans would start parking vehicles early in the morning or even the night before a home game just to get their favorite spot.  The community would hum with chatter the next day after an exciting game with their own strategy analysis.

High school football was a catalyst for teaching the importance of hard work, perseverance, tolerance and teamwork. You win together, you lose together, and the big one… life isn’t always fair.

So, here’s to the final farewell of Friday night lights and the Grant-Deuel Wildcat football field.

Blessed be the memory…
