Unique Football Traditions

There have been threads about best game day atmosphere, uniforms, etc., but I have not seen any thread about traditions that are unique to your specific HS football team/school.

 

What are some of the special traditions that are out there around the state?

 

If this thread as been started, someone please link to that thread.

I don't know that this was unique but starting with junior high football (7, 8 and 9 played freshman ball back in those days), we wore ties on game days and it continued through to high school.

Though not exactly unique, "Tunnel Time" for Belfry has been a longstanding tradition and really sets the atmosphere at home. Belfry comes out to "2001: A Space Odyssey" and proceeds to do the starting lineup while fans line the field and little kids high five their favorite players. A unique, but less long standing tradition is the train horn Belfry uses

 

 

 

 

 

My favorite Belfry tradition though is how the late, great Belfry P.A. Steve Phillips instilled the trademark "For another..... PIRATE.... TOUCHDOWN!" call which has been continued on.

BRING BACK THE CANNON!!!! (not going to happen)

I'm always thinking there must be a way to "simulate" the cannon firing...

Smoke machine, compressed air, and a recorded shot over the PA???

 

Even though I grew up hating HHS, I did think the cannon fire was pretty damn cool!
