FHS would have played in the first state tournament game ever in the Devaney Center if they would have won that game. Alas, 'twas not to be.

    I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.I wont give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and showed up for all wounded children.

There was nothing I loved more than trouncing MW on a Friday night and then beating them in a marching competition on Saturday morning...

    ...and then going home and watching Husker football!
    I never played football in highschool, but our football teams always beat Millard North in the regular season, but lost to North in the playoffs. Except my freshman year when MW won the state championship. We always said the steroids kicked in in the playoffs haha
