Football Friday

Season opener football game against Riverton High School.  Riverton is a town about 2 hours south of Worland and has about twice as many people.  There is a brand new football coach this year.  He came here from Sugar City Idaho.  His name is Thor Ware and he has three sons in high school, a sophomore, junior, and senior.  Their names: Thor (he has a tattoo that says LT for little thor), Blade, and Steele.  They all start and are very good.  A huge crowd of around 1800 people showed up for the game.  Emma sat with the high school kids, Andy was one of the two ball boys, chosen from the 8th grade football team as one of the hardest working kids this past week.  Peter, Lucy, and Eric sat with us.  Peter has a new admirer:

Her name is Shiree and she came right up to Peter and sat with him the entire game!  She is in his class at school.  He wasn't sure what to make of it, but by the end of the game they were laughing and having a great time!  I love the look on his face!

This new football coach is supposed to redeem the team.  They only won three games last year.  He promised the community this year would be lots better.  It looks like he might be right.  We won 24-21.  Palmer got more playing time in this game than he did the entire time he spent on the Mountain View team his freshman and sophomore years.  He recovered two onside kicks and got his name over the loud speaker, "Palmer Edholm with the recovery!"  I have to admit to this mom, it was pretty cool.  I'm a fan of the Worland High Warriors!
Right before the game started.  Their bleachers hold more than the Mountain View Stadium

Getting ready to play
A great way to spend Friday night!
