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.

    ‘Student of the Month’ parents get bumperstickers instead.

  • Jim Shapiro

    I once saw a bumpersticker that read, “My kid steals your student of the month’s lunch.”

  • Susan

    A good way to make sure the cheerleaders know which house to TP.

  • JackU

    The bumper sticker in this category that I like is “My Golden Retriever is smarter than your honor student.”

    (Of course there are versions for most any breed of dog. Maybe even “My News Cut Dog is smarter than your honor student.”)
