Midnight Madness a success

Midnight Madness is the annual kickoff to the Yellow Jacket football season. 500 fans participated this year.

Friday, August 7th marked the start of another season of Forest Hills High School football! The Yellow Jacket faithful came out to meet the team, get some new gear, get fall sports passes, and just generally get in the spirit for fall sports.

About 500 fans came out from 10:00 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. to meet the players and to see their first full contact practice of the season. The cheerleaders and the band also made their season debuts!

It was also fans' first opportunity to buy the All-Sport Fall Season Pass for just $100. This pass provides admission to all home regular-season fall sporting events. Fans could also buy fall sports parking passes for $25. This provides reserved parking for all home football games.

The Athletic Boosters were a big part of the event, opening the Jacket Store for the new school year to meet everyone's spirit-wear needs. The concession stand also sold light concessions, but is looking forward to its full menu for the upcoming home games.
