For the last six weeks, the Grand Junction Tigers high school football
team has been practicing. Very long practices. I know this because
the high school is adjacent to our house and they are on the field all the
time. At least it seems like it. Now it appears that all their hard work
in the hot weather is paying off and they are ranked Number 1 in the
State of Colorado for 5A football teams. This is a big deal because rarely,
if ever, are teams from the Western Slope ranked Number 1. I hope they
continue to play well!
