Coming off back-to-back Region wins over St. Martin and Harrison Central, the Indians will return home this evening for their final regular-season home game of the year.
It will be senior night in which 17 senior football players along with two senior managers, seven senior cheerleaders, and two senior dance team members will be recognized before the game. The senior introductions will begin at 6:30 p.m. so make plans to be here early and support these young people who have been a part of the Biloxi program for several years.
The month of October has been Breast Cancer Awareness month, and the Indians will recognize all cancer survivors tonight. The football team will wear the pink cancer ribbon emblems on their helmets and we are asking any cancer survivor who wants to participate to be ready to come out on the field at 6:45 p.m. You will form two lines for the football players to run through as they come onto the field immediately after the National Anthem.
We need the entire community out this evening to support our Indians as they fight to beat Hancock and secure a playoff spot before closing out the regular season next week at Gulfport.
Biloxi student chosen for Army All-American band
Biloxi High School senior Ryan Tempone has been selected as a member of the 125-member U.S. Army All-American Band.
Members of the All-American Band traveling tour stop team will be at Biloxi High School on Tuesday afternoon to formally recognize Ryan.
As part of the qualification process,
Ryan had to submit a video of his performing and marching abilities. He was selected by a national panel of industry experts. He will receive a trip to San Antonio in January to represent Biloxi High School and perform with the U.S. Army All-American Band on national TV in conjunction with the Under Armour All-American Bowl.
The presentation on Tuesday will be in the Biloxi High School Lecture Hall at 1:15 p.m.
