Once again, the Marshall Academy football team has shown what amazing talent they have in winning the North Half championship game last Friday night. This week, they will travel to Mississippi College in Clinton, to battle it out with the Fighting Tigers of Centreville for the State Championship title.
What is so amazing is three charter buses have been rented for fans, Patriots and parents to travel in style to Clinton. My bet is they will all be full with probably enough wanting to go to rent one more! If you have never ridden on a “pep bus” to a sporting event of this magnitude, you need to sign on and go. Anticipation and excitement will carry you there, exhaustion will bring you home. This has been a long three weeks of football and, come Friday night, it will all be over, win or lose. I rode the pep bus when I was a senior back in ’88 (yeah, I am old!) to MC to watch Marshall Academy play it out for the state championship. Just being in that stadium to watch a high school football game was awesome. It gave the saying, “Friday Night Lights,” a whole new meaning!!
This group of football players is so fun to watch. What they do on the field is truly magical. They work together like a fine, oiled machine to get the job done, as they have proven all season long. Good luck, guys - go show those folks what you are made of and bring home that championship! A special shout to the seniors - make this night your own. You are making memories that will last a lifetime - tales you will tell your children and they will tell theirs. Play as you have played all season long and you will have no regrets. Just be sure to remember - stick ’em!! Go Patriots!
