Western Nebraska Observer - Observations all along the line - Kimball & the Southern Panhandle First

The real fans show up year after year

 

Tom Southard

The first fans in the gym at the Kimball High basketball game this winter are Fayann Cain and Donna Talbott. With programs in hand, along with their sacks of popcorn, they claim the seats you will find them in at all home games, all season long. Top row, west side, with a good view and good back rests. Play Ball!

High School sports are a large part of what holds small towns together and the fans that show up event after event play such a large part in the success of these programs. You have the Family Fans who take their turn of attending as long as some young member of their claim is active. I speak of the Moms and Dads, Grandmas and Grandpas, Aunts and Uncles, brothers and sisters. Then you have the true call town sports fan who turns out year after year simply to enjoy watching and cheering on the kids, while supporting the school and enjoying watching young athletes perform.

I have been amazed...
