Final preparations before the start of the new season.
Just love the new uniforms. Please put the old black ones in a big pile
and burn them.

I wanted to send you an e-mail saying how much I appreciate your site. I
am from Plano and am in the National Guard. I was called up to active
duty in June of last year. I was sent to Mississippi, California, Kuwait
and finally Iraq. I've been in Iraq since last November. One of the
things I miss the most from home is high school (and college) football.
I found your site earlier this year and had a blast going through all
your photos of last season. It was almost as good as being there. I
especially liked the trouble you went to capturing the full scene with
pics of the halftime show, the drill team, the band, the cheerleaders
and the crowd. Unfortunately, I will still be in Iraq for the 2005
season. I am looking forward to seeing all the games (complete with all
the pageantry) on your website. I guess the first game should be coming
up soon, so I've got something to look forward to.
With any luck, I should be done with this mission and back home sometime
in November. So maybe I'll get back in time for the playoffs. Maybe this
year, West will go all the way. Last year, I was so out of the loop I
didn't even realize that West made the playoffs, let alone that they
made a run at State. Anyway, thanks again for the cool website. Keep it

(Doug's comments: Wow. And I thought I was highly
motivated before ............... Sgt. Locke's email address is
[firstname.lastname@example.org] Gotta believe that soldiers in
today's army like to hear from friends.)
This was an incomplete pass. But, it is always important to look
good when posing for this webpage.
Anybody see my helmet???????
