How do you guys feel not being able to play the last homecoming game?

“It’s depressing bro. I have never really been hurt before. I have plantar fasciitis so I have scar tissue on my foot. It’s sad to know that I’m not playing my last homecoming game but I know my brothers out there will get the W,” senior Todd Hampton said.

“It’s nice to be here still but it’s a weird feeling not being a part of it. Your pre-game routine is all the same thing, you do the same thing you wake up at the same time, it all being thrown off is weird,” senior Spencer Fairbairn said.

6:56 p.m.: Tyler Spence, Nick McDaniel, Jaeson Juarez and Matt Yockey meet four Douglas County players for the coin toss. Douglas County won the toss and will receive first.
