This fall, the football team had an average year compared to other years.  The team had a lot of highs and lows throughout the season. They had a winning record and made it to the playoffs ,but also lost to their rivals Bishop McGuinness and lost in the first round of the playoffs to Noble. The student section at the home games also had its highs and lows with attendance this season. Although there was a group of students who were very dedicated Comet Football fans, a lot of the students didn’t consistently show up to home games. Football player, Jack Barkley (11)  wasn’t too impressed on the attendance of students at his games throughout the season.

“As the season went on, it felt like less and less students showed up to our games even though we strived as a team to get them to come. We felt like we played better with a larger student section in the stands,” Barkley said.

Having the feeling that many of their peers that they spend every day at school are out at their games supporting them makes the players more motivated to get the win for their school.

Cheerleaders are responsible for pumping up the crowd to cheer their school on. They are always at the games and also want to see a large attendance. Cheerleader Kate Tunnell (9) was excited at the start of the season with the large student section, but was disappointed when students stopped showing up.

“I tried my hardest to hype up the students for games. I thought they were energetic, but there needs to be a more consistent attendance,” Tunnell said

Although the attendance was a roller coaster, what was the reason students don’t want to come out to the games? Grayson Berryhill (9), who only went to the first two games did not want to come because he didn’t find them the most fun thing to be doing on Friday nights.

“I just thought I could be doing a lot more fun stuff during my Fridays instead of watching high school football,” Berryhill said.

It is up to the students next year to find ways to make cheering on the football team more fun and build their school spirit to improve the culture of Bishop Kelley
