Every High School sport should take note of what an amazing event took place this past Saturday at Frontier High School.

This Saturday was the varsity boys' soccer senior night and the theme the team chose to do was "Socc-tober" including free trick or treating around the field at half-time. The team, coaches, and parents all came together to make the event happen and invited all the kids in the area to come to support the team and get some free candy.

Saturday, over 1,000 people came out dressed up and made the senior night special for Frontiers' six seniors and also had a chance to see some good high school soccer and get some free candy. If any high school coaches or parents read this, this should be a must event for your school or team. What an amazing night for the team and the community. Getting people to the stadium to enjoy the atmosphere of a high school game is a great way to grow the game.  

We know what the Bills mean to the Western New York community. We know that Bills Mafia is more than just watching games. It is about the community. Why not start to develop that at the high school level?

The more people in the community that support the local teams the better. Plus it is a great way for the schools to show off the new fields and athletic complexes that seem to be being built every year here in Western New York.

So for your next "Senior" night or other big game, think about ways to get the whole community involved.
