This year’s homecoming game was scheduled against Smithson Valley, one of the state’s highest-ranked football programs. In the game this past Friday at Heroes Stadium, SVHS showed why they were one of the most respected teams in Texas, keeping their foot on the gas and winning in a 63-3 blowout.
The team started off with a promising start, deferring after winning the coin toss and recovering Smithson Valley’s fumble on the kick. After Smithson Valley scored a couple of early touchdowns, a promising drive led to a field goal, the team’s only points of the game. After that, Smithson Valley controlled the field and kept possession of the ball for the rest of the regulation, creating long and effective drives.
Despite the loss, the team has kept composed throughout the entire season and has shown many promising offensive drives and defensive stops.
“I think that we’ve been doing really good things,” senior offensive lineman Reeve Brown said. “No matter what the score is, we still go out and play our hardest, even though some people don’t think that.”
The team’s next game will be held this Friday in Kyle against Lehman, who currently hold a 2-5 record and are on a five-game losing streak.
Brown was also selected as part of the homecoming court, which was announced and presented on the field during halftime of the game.
“Thank you,” Brown said. “I mean, I didn’t expect to be on there, and I didn’t think that anyone would vote for me, so I just want to thank them.”
The homecoming dance was held in the school courtyard the following day, which many students attended. This is the second consecutive year holding the dance at the on-campus venue, and this time close to 1000 students showed out.
