By now most of you have probably heard about the state of the Glencliff High School football program. In recent weeks they have struggled to have enough boys to play. At one point at the end of September it was even feared they might have to forfeit their last four games.
They haven’t quit.
Despite their incredibly small roster they’ve figured out a way to show up each and every week and compete.
I witnessed Glencliff’s first game, a 66-8 loss to our Lipscomb Academy Mustangs. Since then it hasn’t gotten any better. The Colts are 0-8 heading into tomorrow night’s game against Hunters Lane. They have been outscored 465-40.
Tomorrow night (Thursday, October 17) is Senior Night for the Colts as it will be their last home game of the season. Game time is 7 pm at Glencliff. Hunters Lane is 1-6 heading into the game.
It’s going to be an absolutely beautiful football weather evening (clear and temp in high 50’s at kickoff).
What can we do?
It’s as simple as that.
Show up and support these kids and coaches. Cheer for them like you cheer for your home team.
Years from now the boys from Glencliff will talk about the night the middle Tennessee community showed up and helped them believe.
I hope to see you and your family tomorrow night. Feel free to spread the word.
Admission is $7.
