Senior Day and the Final Football Game of 2015
The final football game of the year (Photographs) proved the most exciting context of the 2015 campaign.
Peru prevailed against Benedictine with a 38-yard field goal as time ran out. The final play erased a huge Bobcat mistake earlier in the game: a fumble as PSC attempted to score from within the ten-yard line resulted in a 91-yard recovery return that quieted the fans.
The final-second win left the Bobcats with a record of 7-4 for the 2015 campaign. Congratulations to the coaches and the players for doing so well in a tough league.
Pre-game ceremonies featured Senior Day celebration for those football players whose careers concluded after that wonderful field goal.
And at halftime, four of my former English students visited me in the press box:
From left to right, Randy Mayberry Stott, Bradley J. Dorenkamp, Cam Pentland, and Ann Mornin Frink.
Welcome back to all of them. What absolute fun!
Many thanks, too, to the excellent crew members with whom I worked this year to help keep statistics for the games. I just might bother them at basketball games.
