Where football is king

My photographer pal Ginger Sisco Cook was in town and we spent a lovely Saturday wandering around to see what we could see. And to photograph what we could photograph. And one thing we found was the football stadium in Roosevelt, Texas.

Also, in case you were wondering, Ginger makes just as many u-turns as I do. And that’s saying a lot!

Football Footprints

Friday’s football fans left their mark all over the bleachers. (Lazbuddy beat Cotton Center, 15-6.)

The visitors’ side of the bleachers at Marathon High School. The district’s not very big – 41 students in grades K-12 in the 2014-2015 school year.

If you’re interested in finding out the upcoming football schedule (or anything else, really), good luck: the website that’s listed for the school district actually goes to a site dealing with lower-case-M marathons and running and has an article titled “5 kick-ass foods I switched to for my marathons.” Check it out! If you want a tiny bit of demographic data about the district, you can find it here.

Or (and this is really my suggestion), you can just look at this photo and imagine a school district that averages 3.15 students per grade.

The sign in the fence helps spectators know which team is the home team.
