The most wonderful time of year is finally here! No, not Christmas … it’s finally football season! It’s time for big expectations and big dreams. It’s the time of year when the entire town rolls out on Friday nights to the stadium in hope of a W. It’s waking early on Saturday mornings hashing out every play and planning for the next week’s game. It’s pep assemblies, homecoming parades, and hometown glory!
If you can’t tell, I love football, and I am ready to cheer on all the teams in Chickasaw Country this fall! While you travel from town to town cheering on your favorite teams, don’t forget to check out the local restaurants for your Friday Night Eats. Trust me, I know you’re hungry with all that cheering!
