Homecoming spotlight focused on top-ranked Trojans

By Walter Geiger The spotlights are not reserved for the big egos on The Walking Dead set in Milner this week as the Lamar County Trojans, ranked atop the Class AA football polls, host homecoming events. It will be a busy week at the school with ample opportunity for fans to get involved. The homecoming theme is ‘Destination Victory.’ Each day is themed for students. Today students wear the colors of the favorite sports team so expect to see a lot of Trojan garb. Wednesday they will dress as cartoon characters. There will be Homecoming Court practice for representatives at 5:30 p.m. Students will vote for the queen during advisement. Thursday will find pairs of students dressed as twins as they arrive downtown for the annual homecoming parade which winds its way along Mill, Main and Thomaston streets beginning at 5 p.m. Those interested in participating in the parade should call the school office at 770-358-8641 by the close of school today. Floats will be judged during the parade. After the parade, there will be a bonfire and block party at the high school from 7-9:30 p.m. The public is welcome. Game day will be busy as well with Friday door decoration judging, an 8:30 a.m. powder puff game and a 1:15 p.m. pep rally. Floats and door contest winners will be announced. You can also get your special student a homecoming mum for a nominal cost and help out the LCMS cheerleaders. Call any school office to set up delivery. As for the game itself, the Trojans (6-0,4-0) will be heavily favored over the War Eagles of Putnam County (2-4, 1-2). Lamar is averaging over 41 points per game and allowing an average of only 12 points. Putnam averages only 19.5 points per game and gives up 24. At halftime Friday, the homecoming queen will be chosen from among a bevy of senior beauties which includes Brianna Dixson, Annah Hartsfield, Emily Larrabee, Jordan Laster and Talyah Robinson. Representing the underclassmen on the homecoming court are junior Gisel Velasco, sophomore Melissa Wyatt and freshman Kayleigh Swanson.
