A Student’s Perspective

Take a look into what the students thought of Eagle football’s state win.

   On Saturday, December 2nd, Liberty North’s varsity football team played against Christian Brother College High School, CBC, for the Class 6 state title. After loosing against the team for the past two years in a row, the Eagle’s claimed their victory, winning 38-7. This marked the first football state win in Liberty North’s history.

   “It was really exciting to see and, knowing the outcome, it was really cool to be at the first state winning football game in our school’s history. It is crazy to be able to say that I was there,” senior Adison Drecktrah said. 

   Despite this game taking place at Mizzou’s football stadium in Columbia, Missouri, Liberty North’s student section, the Navy, gave the students an opportunity to ride on the spirit bus. This bus provided food, a ticket to the game, and transportation to Columbia. If students did not sign up, they had the option to drive themselves.

   “I drove with a few of my friends up to the state game. It all went pretty well. It was raining on the drive up there, which was kind of stressful, but the drive back was chill. We made it there safely,” senior Lia Nickel said.

   Due to these opportunities, students were able to fill the stands to support Eagles football. Throughout the game, the student section stayed energized, becoming excited after every play.

   “I was surprised to see so many people in the student section since the game was in Columbia. I had fun talking to people, celebrating with everyone, and just cheering the football team on,” Nickel said. 

   After the two losses in previous years for state, some were on edge for the outcome of the game.

   “I knew for sure that we were going to put up a fight, but I didn’t know we were going to win. I was pretty happy with the results,” Drecktrah said.

   As the Eagles knocked CBC out of the water, excitement has already begun to build for the next season, some wonder how exactly that may look.

   “Since the football team is loosing a lot of seniors this year, I hope to see that they take it in stride and not really miss a beat when the next season arrives. I hope they are able to find new people that are able to fill those positions and pick up where they left off,” Drecktrah said.
