The Pirates are currently sitting on top of an 8-1 record with one remaining game before the playoffs. Today the Pirates will face off against the Broken Bow Savages, competing for the district title. But that is not what’s special about tonight. Tonight is senior night for all the senior football players. I had the opportunity to interview one of them. When asked about what it’s like to play for such a high-caliber football team, Ben Brooks had something to say. “There are almost no words to describe it. It’s hard at times, but you are also proud at the end when you see the rewards you get for all the hard work you have put in.” The Pirates have worked hard this season to get to where they are now. In order to make it to state, he said “We have got to get better at everything and pay attention to the little things. Right now we are good, but to win state we will have to be great.” Like I stated earlier, Tonight is senior night. It’s a night to honor the seniors who have stuck with it for all four years and have been faithful to the football program. This night can bring a lot of emotions, but this is what Ben is looking forward to. “I’m looking forward to being with our senior class and just enjoying the moment of us all playing our last district game together."

 

Senior night festivities start at 6:20 with photos starting at 4:30 in the HS gym lobby.

Come out tonight at 7:00 to support the Pirates and the seniors!
