I’ll be the first to admit I’m not a head-over-heels high school football sports fan that a lot of people are, so I don’t keep up to date on the latest in booster club fashion, and my colleague — Ted Canova — tells me this has been a tradition in at least the southwestern Twin Cities suburbs for some time, but this is the first time I’ve seen lawn signs in my neck of the woods — Woodbury — to mark the homes of high school football players.
It struck me as a little bit of Dillon, Texas right here in flyover country.
The obvious question is who’ll be the first to put up a sign at the home of a National Honor Society student?
Woodbury hosts Roseville tonight. Good luck, kids.
