See Saturday’s spirit winners in all their Buccaneer glory (pics)

September 22, 2011

There were many great fans at Saturday’s first home football game, but below are three who really caught our eye—and will be receiving prizes for their Buccaneer flair.

Josh Smith’15 combined school spirit with patriotism, and the result proved so popular that he became a photo op for other fans at Saturday’s game.

Thanks to members of the Parents Club like Kymber Simonis (mother of Hayden Simonis’14), on the left and pictured here with Shannon Pearson, game attendees were treated to a huge spread of food and drink during tailgating, including this gigantic cake.


Dane Winkler donned a bleached-blonde Mohawk to match his big brother’s (Darth Winkler’15) and a T-shirt emblazoned with “65,” his brother’s number. Sixty-five is significant to the Lewistown, Ill.-based Winklers: The entire family of football fanatics (dad is a high school coach) has worn it in play, starting with Darth’s grandfather.
