Well, as Rod Stewart said, Tonight's The Night! The Broadway High School Fighting Gobblers have made it through the entire regular season without a loss. They have already won the Valley District Championship and a place in the playoffs. Tonight they play for something that has only happened two other times for the football team. Tonight they play for an undefeated season.
If you have never played a sport, you may not understand the significance of this. It's hard enough to make the playoffs, have a winning season, etc. An undefeated season is perfection. It's the standard you want to achieve, but often miss. They have that chance tonight.
The amazing thing about these kids is I don't think they believe they can be beaten. You never see them quit. They are a hardworking group. Maybe it's due partly to the fact that every game is dedicated to a fallen member of the military. Or, maybe because many of them have played together since pee-wee football. They just believe in one another.
So tonight, I will be at the game. I'll be cheering on the kids and, of course the award winning band, along with about everyone else in town. Go Gobblers!
