It’s common sense when you think about it.
High school athletic programs must have community support to thrive and be successful. Think about it, you don’t see too many winning programs without it. Come to think about it, you don’t see any that I know of.
That’s why the scene at the Banks County High School football stadium last Friday night — for a preseason scrimmage no less — was so great to see. As the start of the scrimmage against Johnson High School arrived, the crowd on the home side of the stadium was indeed a sight to behold.
One long-time Leopard fan said there have been plenty of regular season games where the stands were not as full. It was great to see the support and enthusiasm of those who took the time to come to support the players and coaches. After the work they have put in during the offseason they certainly deserve it.
