TownSquareBuzz.com finds out what goes into the preparations for a football game at Ron Poe Stadium. We discover that there are many moving pieces that all have to be coordinated like a well-oiled machine in order for a flawless Friday Night Lights (or sometimes Thursday) experience to occur.
From dawn to well after dark, MISD athletic department staff are busy with preparations. There are tickets to count, food to be delivered to the press box, signage to be posted, security details organized, instructions to be handed out, parent volunteers participate in the preparations … and the list goes on.
This particular recent game day that TSB chronicles is the “Purple Out” night for McKinney Boyd, which meant extra work and planning to accommodate the event, which was part of the pre-game festivities.
