Fans Never Left
October 21, 2021
Painted bodies cram together in the student section. A cloud of colored powder is tossed above. Yell leaders call out cheers waiting for students to shout back. The new school year has brought back many old favorites, but for many FHC students, the return of Friday Night Lights has been the most important.
For many Spartans, FNL symbolizes what used to be. Friday evenings full of fun, friends, and football. By painting their faces and packing the student section, many chase the feeling of life pre-Covid. Yell Leader Luke Cummings has enjoyed the return of the student section this year.
“Things are getting better,” Cummings said. “We’re allowed to have these fans and we’re allowed to have these huge crowds … I think it’s back to normal.”
