With school starting up and everyone getting into the swing of the year, Skutt Catholic is awaiting the return of the football season. From the themes to music in the halls, football Fridays are a tradition that has the whole school anxious for the impending game.

This Friday, Skutt opens off the year away against the Bennington Badgers coming off a loss to the York Bulldogs in the state championship game last November, 44-0. The SkyHawks look to improve on the result of last year and claim their first state championship since 2014. Many notable seniors will be missed this year including all-state finalists Jackson Gordon, Kyle Hruby and Jake Archer, who is currently playing at the University of Nebraska.

Despite some key losses from last year, this team’s roster still has star-studded talent at both ends with the likes of Jarod Epperson, Alex Vandyke, Ryan McCormick and Tyson Gordon. The team has worked hard this offseason and is ready to see their hard work pay off with plenty of wins. A few players will be sitting out for this upcoming game. “Some guys made a mistake, but we are still not going to let it impact the season and we are still looking forward to Friday’s game,” said senior lineman Alex Stumpff.

The theme for this Friday’s game is a white out, which traditionally has been the theme for the first away game of the season. Friday also marks the annual freshmen road trip down to the game, where freshman get t-shirts, have pizza and then ride down to the game together to get to know one another.

The SkyHawks look to get the season started off on the right foot and to ride that momentum all the way to Memorial Stadium.
