It was perfect weather for Friday night lights and SCHS Homecoming festivities at Burchfiel Stadium.

Lisa, Debbie, and I entered the stadium and ran into some Smoky Bear fans. I know their mom, Holly Carr, and know that she must be very proud of them!

Band moms helping out by selling ‘thunder sticks’ to create noise to confuse our opponents.  Allison should bring those to work so we can use them there in certain circumstances. 🙂

I have been told that the ‘Band Crack’ is quite addictive so I was scared to try it. Let me know what you think!

I always like to go up and say hello to Mr. Gary Roach, retired principal of SCHS. He is pictured here (from left to right)  with his wife, Darlene; daughter, Sandra; and grandson, Zach.

Recently appointed SCHS Principal, Stephanie Huskey, is cheering on the Smoky Bears near the top of the stadium. She is also an alumnus of the high school. Great things are happening at SCHS this year!

Next, I went down to the field to photograph alumni participants in the homecoming festivities. The student section was watching homecoming intently for the winner.

Here are some members of the Alumni Band ready to join the pre-game show. These graduates belong to the class of 2017. Welcome back!

These band members were from the 1980’s. They still rock the purple and white!

Under the direction of Nathan Rhea, SCHS Choir members sing the Alma Mater.

I caught the last part of the “Star Spangled Banner.”  Beautifully done!

The press box is a long way up, but the view is worth it.

The scoreboard is busy with announcements. This one invites the crowd to visit services at the Sevierville First United Methodist Church, for both a traditional and a contemporary services.

My camera is not great in the dark, but you can see the announcement from Alex Barnwell and the Horace Mann Company. I recommend him!

Great performance by the SCHS band!

 It is great to get out and about in Sevierville to enjoy fall, Fridays, and football.

Go Smoky Bears!
