A surge of emotion is poured onto the field and through the crowd. The screaming from the stands roars through the cold, crisp air. The crowd settles down and you can feel the mood immediately shift.
Senior Night this year was on Oct. 24. It is a celebration of a players’ final year with their school, their team and their friends. It commemorates their last four years and prepares them for what is to come, whether that be college, military, etc.
Players and their parents start lining up in front of the stands. A booming voice comes over the stadium and one by one the students step forward as the voice reads off the player’s name, position and plans for after high school.
Student council members presented each senior a yellow rose as they stepped forward.
The Mt. Juliet Bears played Station Camp, who has a record of 0-8, so no surprise the Bears beat them 46-7. What a night to be a Bear.
The night was a night to remember, not just for seniors, but for the student section as well.
The theme for the student section was red in remembrance of JayShawn Taylor, who was supposed to be a senior this year. His passing affected the student body greatly, especially the football team. This tribute meant a lot to his friends and family.
