FAIR OAKS (CBS13) — After weeks of practice, prepping and planning, it’s finally gametime for high-school football teams.
It’s that time of the year they’ve all been waiting for.
“Long summer. Lot of dedication, hard work.”
“We’ve all been on edge. We’ve all been waiting for the season to start,” said parent Keith McCombs.
The first full Friday night of games is off to a rocky start at Del Campo, where the Cougars hosted the Antelope Titans for the teams’ first-ever game against each other.
“Well, it’s going pretty good,” said grandparent Kyle Otten. “Unfortunately for Del Campo, we’ve made a couple of little mistakes, but I like what I’m seeing.”
For Keith McComb, all eyes are on his kid.
“He’s the quarterback.”
Despite the slow start to the game, the teams were met with cheers on the field and from the bleachers.
And with the sizzling of food on the grill, and the teen spirit filling the air, they know there’s many more games to come to show who’s who on the field this season.
“We love it. We don’t miss any of the games as long as we can help it,” said Otten.
