Capturing Friday night

To the Editor:

The “Football night in America” article (Oct. 11) by Shawn Shinneman warmed my heart.

It was an excellent summary of how we experience high school football in this county. It’s such a snapshot of a moment, a season of life, a common thread for so many of us. My daughters played in the band, and, as band parents, we spent many Friday nights following a similar schedule as was represented in the article.

I will cut out the article and send copies to my children. I plan to laminate it and include it in my box of treasured memories. Great recap.
