In 2013, the Falcons, at home, opened their season by whacking the Raymond S. Kellis Cougars, 55-20. Last Friday night, in faraway Glendale, the Falcons put a “double whammy” on the Cougars: double as in 51 points and a big, fat zero!

Why, then, were the Falcs at practice on the Labor Day holiday? Head Coach Mike Hudnutt answered that question one month ago when declaring that he never wanted to become “satisfied” with the Falcons’ progress, always pushing them to keep improving. Coach, I’d have to label 51-0 as a pretty fair country start! Congratulations!

September 5 will mark four noteworthy home debuts. First, of course, the Falcons; second, Coach Hudnutt; third, Varsity Cheer’s new head coach Brittney Scherba; and fourth, Falcon Stadium’s new scoreboard, thanks to Cactus Shadows’ “Rebuild the Nest” athletic improvements program. Will the Falcons light up the new scoreboard with 51 or more points? You’ll have to be in the West Stands to find out!

On Friday night, for Cactus Shadows Football and Soccer, may the new scoreboard tell the first story of many Falcon wins to come.
