“So I can show my great grandkids what Kyle looked like the last game!” – My Mister, Class of 1990
I am thankful for the last two seasons of Aggie football. Around these parts, it’s kind of a big deal. We live in a town where game day weekends are huge. From Friday until Sunday, just about everywhere you go people are wearing maroon and white. Grocery stores, restaurants, the mall… everyone is wearing maroon and 12th Man gear. Aggie flags line the major roads and fly from houses in neighborhoods. Even through the hard years of being not quite good enough it has been a big deal – especially in our household. The Mister and his dad have only missed a few home games in over twenty years of being ticket holders.
Coach Sumlin, Johnny Football, Swope, Evans… Not to mention a little trophy called THE HEISMAN. They have all brought some life to a school and a game that I haven’t seen in a while. It’s been fun again.
Kyle Field holds a lot of fun memories for us. It’s strange to think it will soon be a new place… but several things won’t change for sure. That’s the Aggie spirit, the tradition, the Aggie Band, and the love of the 12th Man for their team. I’m thankful we’ve been able to share those things with our girls… living here in this town is something I don’t take for granted.
