Football State Championship 2014

On December 6th, our Skiatook Bulldog football team went to the 2014 5A State Championship in Oklahoma City.  We played Lawton MacArthur in Yukon, Oklahoma. 

To say that we were excited is an understatement.  Our little town hasn't had a state championship in football since 1974.  I've never seen the entire town so united in a common goal in my life. 

The week before the game, people were posting pictures of themselves in their letter jackets from high school on Facebook.  It was the funniest thing to see all of the football players' dads trying to squeeze into their twenty five year old letterman.  Jim pulled his out and put it on.  He had to suck in a little but, by gosh, it fit. 

Our downtown area had all the windows painted for the football boys with their names and encouraging words.  It was so wonderful to see how much excitement there was for our football team.  We weren't expected to do as well as we did at the beginning of the year, which made it even better.
