School is back in session which means Friday Night Lights are back for the Scouts as well. After much conversation over the past few years, Scout Nation has made the decision to move our student section from the far left (south) end of the bleachers to directly next to the LFHS Band on the far north side of Varsity Field at West Campus.
Most schools’ student sections are, in fact, adjacent to the band, as it heightens the energy and pumps up the crowd and the players alike. Senior Kyle Wix, a seasoned Scout Nation member, is a fan of the move. “This move combines all of our student groups together into one cohesive unit,” Wix says. “Scout Nation, Band, and Cheer can now all connect to cheer on the team which has never happened at West Campus before.”
The moving of the student section should not be approached with whining or complaint as another change that the school is implementing; rather, this change should be met with excitement and enthusiasm. LFHS Friday night football games are about to get a lot more exciting now that the band and students will be in sync.
This Friday’s theme is a white out sponsored by Scout Nation. All students with a valid student ID attending the football game will receive a free white-out t-shirt. “We made white ‘We Are Scouts’ shirts for students to wear as they embody the togetherness that the student section move is all about.” Wix proclaimed. All other fans without ID can still purchase the shirt for $5.00 to help “White Out” the stands of West Campus.
