HOCO 2019: Homecoming Game

Tahj Hunter and Tulio Martinez

There are many exciting things about the next few weeks and one of them is the homecoming football game.  The Gaither Cowboys (5-0) will play against the Land O’ Lakes Gators (1-5) at Death Valley Stadium. Students and fans are encouraged to wear pink shirts in honor of breast cancer awareness month. 

This game is very important, being a district game, because it will decide whether the Cowboys go to the playoffs.  A win against the Gators will keep Gaither at the top of Class 6A District 6. 

The implications this game will have on postseason play is special for the seniors, considering how much more successful the team is this season compared to last.  

Gaither linebacker Sammie Lee is excited to play in his last homecoming game and plans to cherish every moment. 

“I’m looking forward to having fun and soaking up all the energy, enjoying playing and creating memories with the boys.  It’s our last one if we’re seniors. After this, we go into real life,” Lee said.
