I love High School Football.
Especially Brookwood Football, and especially the Brookwood – Collins Hill games.
For some reason, even though they aren’t “the” official rivals of BHS, Collins Hill puts on a good show at home or away. It’s always a good game.
Friday night was no different. In the first region game of the season, Brookwood came out victorious, but it didn’t start that way.
CHS was UP 6 in the first quarter, Brookwood blocked the kick for the PAT, and then scored on a 74 yard run.
It was RRRRRRRRRRRRRRR-some!
Brookwood was leading handily at the half, but things were looking like they were going Collins Hill’s way when they tied the score at 31-31 with only two minutes to go.
DOUBLE OVERTIME settled the score and BHS came out on top – 45-38!
It was better than the Thrilla in Manilla!
Throw in the added perks of getting to eat a hot dog, seeing friends from school, and watching the band (yes, my kids were band nerds GEEKS!), it was a great way to spend a Friday Night!
Support your local teams! It’s fun, inexpensive, and great entertainment.
