Football enhances community spirit
There are few things that make a community gel like neighborhood schools — especially a high school. While there are theater and concerts and an assortment of other showcase sports and activities for high school students to mix with the community at large, it’s still Friday night football games that create the most fun and excitement.
This year, all three high schools in the Issaquah School District are contenders for titles. Skyline has been the state favorite for many years, but will have to fight for the KingCo title this year. Issaquah may very well be the one to become top dog, already 3-0 this year. The Liberty Patriots were in the 3A state playoffs last year, and don’t want to settle for No. 2 again. It’s high excitement!
If you are looking for good entertainment value, make plans now to attend a football game at one of these three schools. Cheerleader pompoms will be shaking, the crowds will be on their feet and the pep bands will keep the spirit going as the teams huddle.
Come early to buy a hamburger to support student activities while you chat with a neighbor or friend. Wear team colors to fit right in. A blanket for the bleachers is recommended, and don’t forget warm gloves as the nights get frosty.
Kids and grandkids welcome, too! Get ready to get inspired.
