I had an opportunity to take my family to Durango High Schools first football game on Sept. 2. The final score notwithstanding (Castle View beat Durango 49-21), we all had a great time.
The DHS marching band and dance teams provided great halftime entertainment. The cheerleaders rallied the crowd. Even the boys who rang the bell when the home team scored were fun to watch.
Fort Lewis Colleges football team came out to support the Demons. The stands were packed with young and old alike. All of that is to say thank you to the Durango High School staff, the Durango High School booster club, the Durango Police Department, and anyone else who helped make the experience a great one.
