Yep. Hits so loud you could hear them clear across the field and into the stands. Clearly.
Santa Anna was the backdrop for Garden City and Milford 2017. A very disciplined, focused Garden City team versus a very fast, aggressive Milford team. What a Battle!
Many Sixman coaches were at the game. It was great to see Coach Jones from Balmorhea and Coach McVey from Santa Anna once again. Michael and Dency McClure from Sixmania were in attendance to broadcast and take pictures. I really enjoy both of their company. Great people! Not only was it going to be a great game but so many of us know each other, have great conversations, and laugh freely. Isn’t that they way it is in every Sixman town on Friday night? Good people come together to support the team and watch the game we love so much, talk and laugh with our friends, and eat concession stand food.
Shoutout to the Santa Anna concession stand! Drinks with ice in a cup. Seriously, that’s the way to go! I also had some really tasty French fries!
It was my first chance to meet Coach Jeff Jones from Garden City and Coach Ronny Crumpton from Milford. I spoke with Coach Jones before the game. It was really good to finally meet him. He was definitely in game mode but gave me a big smile and told me he was glad we were there.
I didn’t catch up with Coach Crumpton until after the game. I introduced myself and he paused when I told him my name and then smiled a little smile (I get that a lot). We talked about the game and ended our conversation as he stated, “We have some things to clean up.” He thanked me for coming. I was glad I got to meet him.
Overall it was a great night of Sixman football. It was the best game I’ve seen in a very long time. It really was a war zone out there. If they come together next year for a game, you can bet I’ll be there. Will you?
Quote of Night (heard someone talking about one of the referees):
“I really like his hair! It’s all business in the front and a party in the back!”
Observations from the evening:
Wonder where Sixman football will take me next week? Until then, all you Sixman folks Go forth and Do GOOD!
