Another school event we all enjoyed was Homecoming. Football was King in Illinois too...not just Texas. In fact, I think Friday Night Lights could take place in any state, in any small town. Our team was really good at that time. The coach had been there forever; he and his wife were also in my mom and dad's "social crowd". Coach Smith (yes, really Smith...not just an alias for my blog.) reminds me of Tom Landry...the famous Cowboys coach...in demeanor and looks...not that I even knew who Landry was then, but living in Texas for many years...I do now!
But Homecoming wasn't JUST about football! We had Spirit Week; we had a parade with floats in which all high school clubs had an entry; we had a Homecoming Court and a dance!!
