Thanks to our fans for great Wildcats season

Dear Editor, 

As co-captain of the BRHS Quarterback Club, I want to thank everyone who has supported the 2012 BRHS football program this year. We just ended a 13-week run of football games on Friday night. What a ride it was this year. The team finished 11-2 on the season. We had great fan support the entire season. Crowds at the home games were always good, but I want to talk about the road game crowds. We filled up visiting stands all over our region. Sometimes we would have as many or more fans than the home team. This past  Friday night was no different. Our crowd had to travel 3.5 hours down to Baldwin County. At 11:15 or so Friday morning, nine chartered buses left the BRHS parking lot. Three buses were for the band, two buses were for the football team, one bus was for the cheerleaders and one bus was for the dance team. The other two buses were full of fans – grandparents, parents, siblings, neighbors and friends. When we arrived at the stadium, we had the middle section full. Once the game started, we were packed in like sardines. I am willing to say we had about 1,200 folks down at the game, including the band, cheerleaders and dance team. One Spanish Fort fan asked me if there was anyone left in Alexander City. Again, thanks to the fans who supported our kids this season. Now on to the other sports throughout the year. Go to a basketball game, a baseball game, a softball game or a wrestling match, or another sports match including one of the sports offered at BRHS. The kids know you are there and appreciate your presence.

Go Wildcats!
