Stills from Clarkston High School Hometown Friday Night Football. These shots are my impressions of all that goes on for a school to deliver a Friday nigh football game. The event starts with concessions getting ready and the players getting taped up. The fans start to come into the stadium as both teams take the field for there pregame warmups. The teams go back into the locker rooms for the last inspirational speeches from various team members and coaches, they really are very good! Then the show starts. The cheerleaders go to the end zone to welcome the home team onto the field with the traditional ripping through the paper banner. The teams gather on the sidelines and stand at attention as the marching band plays the national anthem In this evening’s case the white rowdy student section sand the anthem, but got a bit ahead of the song, fun. This game started in full sun with lengthening shadows and continued into sunset, dusk and full dark under the lights.
