Fridays, Fun, and Football

High school can feel repetitive, Fridays in the fall are different. Students still wake up, go to school, and participate in extracurriculars, but instead of it being just another day the school has a new burst of energy. 

“Everyone is excited because it’s the end of the week and game days are just really hyped up. We get a chance to support our school and let people know how great we are,” Skylar Kilbey, 9, said. 

Football isn’t the only activity on Friday, but it brings the school together. By 7 p.m. the students section will be filled with students dressed to the theme. The band will be playing, the cheer and dance team will be on the track performing, the football team will be down on the field playing. 

Home games might have more hype but it’s a popular belief among students that away games are more fun. Students that travel to away games bring lots of energy, and want to show the other team that they are enough. 

“Away games are a lot of fun, you get to see other people’s way of cheering on their team so when you do so when you go they have a different feeling. You have to prove to the other school that you’re better than them,” Isabelle Olcott, 10, said.

The energy brought to the school during football season, whether the team is playing at home or away,  is unbelievably hype, but this energy does not have to end after football season. There are a lot of other events that happen at the school that could be just as fun as football games.

“I think we can tell more people and promote other games, not just football. I feel like football games are talked about, and I feel like if volleyball games or tennis matches were talked about people would go,” Kilbey, said 

Attending other events and making sure they are known about is a great way to keep the game day energy in the school, even after football season ends.

Hey guys! I’m Madi Brown, I'm a sophomore and this is my first year in SPUB! I have previous experience in journalism and photography and I am so excited to share stories about what’s going on in the world, but more specifically our school. Journalism is an interest in my life that I don’t share with a lot of my friends and I love how it is just my own little thing. When I'm not in my room doing homework or at practice you will more than likely find me reading a book, drinking coffee, or hanging out with my friends.
