It’s that time of year again. In most corners of the country, people are enjoying the scents and sights of fall – leaves, turning and falling, in shades of red, orange and gold, and summer growing old.
But the colors blazing in Gardner and Edgerton this time of year are not of nature. Instead, the predominant colors of this area are blue and white.
The Blazer football squad is inching toward what it hopes will be another run at a state title this year. Despite an season-opening loss, Blazer fans are showing their support – on the windows of businesses, on their tailgates and on their person in the form of Blazer spirit wear.
Last Friday, the Blazer squad lost to Blue Valley. This Friday, they take on a whole new challenge — Blue Valley Northwest.
The Huskies will present a challenge. Last week, they beat reining league dominators, St. Thomas Aquinas. Its the budding of a giant rivalry taking seed that will make this Friday’s game a must-see.
The Trailblazers definitely have the support of this community behind them, but they’ll need to hear our voices at Friday night’s game to give them the extra edge that a loud home crowd can produce in a big game.
It’s time to really rally behind the Blazer football squad with the biggest audience of the season.
Are you ready for some football? We hope to see you in the stands on Friday night.
