  • Big Blue said,

    This is always a great night of festivities. I love watching the expressions on both teams players faces while everything is going on. You can tell they are relishing the moment and trying to remember each detail. Memories of this night last a lifetime for all of these young men. Good Luck to both teams and prayers for a safe game for all participants.
