Friday night lights came to an end Nov. 6. No, I don’t mean the movie or TV series. I’m talking about the Friday night lights that took place every Friday at Flour Bluff High School this football season.
The Flour Bluff Hornets needed to win, and they needed a loss by either the Victoria East Titans or the Gregory Portland Wildcats. Flour Bluff beat the Alice Coyotes 27-21, but they didn’t get the loss they needed so their season end- ed in disappointment.
The Flour Bluff Hornets rush onto the field to kick off their game against the Alice Coyotes on Nov. 6.
Flour Bluff came into the sea- son with high expectations. They entered the season ranked in the top 20 for the 5A classification in the coaches’ poll. After going 12-1 last year, many had hoped for sim- ilar success this season especially with quarterback Cody Brewer, a Washington State commit, return- ing for his senior season.
Flour Bluff ended the season on a three-game winning streak, which included handing district champion Calallen their only loss in league play. The season that began with high hopes has now ended with what might have been.
