Wednesday nights scrimmage at Milford High School really put me in the mood for some football. Regardless of the hot weather, we knew we had to be out there to finally cheer for our boys.
Standing on the sideline and looking out at the crowd brought back all the memories from past football seasons, and that made me get so much more excited. As we ran cheer after cheer, it came time to perform our halftime routine. Everyone’s adrenaline was pumping as we ran onto the field. We were nervous, too. But as the music started, we all let loose and hit everything.
Once our routine was over, we run back to the sidelines to practice more cheers. The sun never shined brighter, and I could feel my face getting redder. But that didn’t bother me much at all because I was where I wanted to be: cheering on the sidelines for the best football players in the state with girls who I’ve formed lifelong friendships with.
Looking around, I realized how excited I was for Saturday night’s game under the lights at Delaware Stadium. Although I know Saturday is going to be a day I won’t want to end, I’m extremely excited for all the events the day has to hold.
