Friday night's Homecoming game against the Center Point Pirates was a great night for the Punchers; but, not such a good night for Center Point. The Punchers were able to play many of their youngest players from very early in the game and were still able to take home a 64-19 victory. From the opening play, the Punchers literally were running with the ball, scoring in the first minute of play on a 21-yard Seth Hudson run.

On Friday night, the Punchers will welcome Center Point to R. Clinton Schulze Stadium for their third district game of the 2014 season. It is also the night of our annual Homecoming festivities where athletes, spirit members and band are all recognized, along with their parents. Last year, rain forced much of the half time activities to be conducted at the pep rally earlier in the day, meaning that many fans missed out on participating in the pomp and circumstance that marks Homecoming.

We all make plans! Sometimes they're big plans, and others are just simple plans. We know what can and does happen to our plans! Yep, some or most of them just bite the dust. And panic then sets in. WHAT TO DO ABOUT NOTHING? Okay, I was guilty of the PANIC attacks.
