Homecoming football games are always special.
Ask anyone who has played football what game is the one they want to win the most. That answer would be the homecoming games.
Today might be slightly different, as the playoffs and the championship game are also special.
Homecoming games are important for everyone in the community, along with former players, as they seem to all come back to their high school or college for the homecoming game.
During my high school football games, we won two homecoming games out of the four years, and the one that stung the most was losing in my senior year.
There was never a homecoming parade back in my high school days. It was coronation, class skits, the football game and the homecoming dance that made up homecoming week.
My first homecoming parade was when I was a freshman in college and, wow!
Seeing all of the people coming back was very impressive.
Homecoming games and festivities will always be something for everyone associated with the high school or college they attended.
