    Whats not special about high school football? Its the lights,its the band,all the guys who used to play on the sidelines telling old "war" stories. The heat of the Pike co. bowl and the bitter chill of the playoffs. The players girlfreinds with their class jackets and jerseys on,even after the theyve married and been out of high school for 10 years. Watching the little kids behind the bleechers tossing the football around and wondering who of that group will be playing under those lights in a few years. Its Pikeville-Belfry week. Its Pikeville-Beechwood week if were lucky enough to get that far. Its knowing that even though youre playing days are over that you are now and always part of a special fraternity. Its seeing youre children play, and it gives you more joy than when you were out there playing. Shall I go on?

    For me it was the adrenaline rush of playing on Friday Nights and the Locker Room talks and Hazing
