Football’s Moment

We can all agree that football has changed over the last 30 years. The plays have gotten smarter, the workouts harder, and the practices longer.

Mrs. Patty Knoll, AKA “The Laptop Doc” AKA “The Chromebook Queen,” explains how football has changed and shares how football was when she was in school.

She graduated from HHS, and attended football games when her kids were playing or cheering. “But,” Knoll said, “I don’t go much anymore”.

“[In high school] they were the main activity in town, so everybody came. We had tons of school spirit and the community got involved.”

Head football coach Kent Teeter said of the upcoming game against Colby: “I’m really excited about the match up because they’re a really good team. They have a running back and a lineman who have both been offered scholarships.”

Kent also explained how football impacted his life and made him who he is today: “I started playing in grade, middle and high school. I also played all throughout college. I also coached all my life. It’s been a big part of my life for a long time. Then after the season is over I go shadow and talk to other coaches and learn from them. It’s pretty cool. One of the coolest things is that I got to coach my son and we ended up winning state.”

Levi knoll, varsity wide receiver and safety, said of this season: “This year is a lot better than last year for the locker rooms. We all get along.”

Football can be a hard sport to understand to some, but to many it’s a life changing experience. The sport itself has a lot of impact on people, and is an awesome thing to watch, experience and learn to play.

The HHS football team will play Colby at home Friday, September 20, 2019. Good luck, Holcomb, on Friday! We wish you the best. Stay on top. GO LONGHORNS!!
