Lauren Wood – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)-  The football season kicks off at 7 p.m. this Friday, Aug. 19, as LRHS takes on the Riverview Rams here at the Ranch.

“I’m really excited to go to the games this year. I like to get dressed up with my friends and cheer on the team,” said sophomore Isabella Young.

The players are anticipating this season just as much as spectators.

“I’m super excited for this Friday. We’ve been practicing for so long, so I’m pretty confident that we will win,” said outside linebacker Dylan Townson, senior.

The Mustangs have practiced every day for the past few months to prepare for the first game, and students are ready to show their support.

Junior Lily Osborne said, “The past few games that I’ve been to have been gnarly, so I’m definitely ready for it.”

Crowds for the any season’s first game are often large, so it is recommended to come early and grab a seat.
