Come August 15th, the Metamora/Washington high school football supremacy argument will be settled – well, sort of.
The players who take the field on this night in Washington will a be a roster of alumni players – reliving days of glory under the lights while a packed stadium of hometown fans go absolutely berserk in the stands. And if you think either of these teams plan to phone it in, you’ve clearly never been to a Washington/Metamora High School Football game.
As you might imagine, this matchup has BOTH towns buzzing, thousands of tickets are selling and a historic event is brewing.
The geniuses at Five Points in Washington are seizing on the spirit of the night and throwing a MASSIVE tailgate – Sammich will be rocking the tunes 8-11pm in the 5 Points parking lot across form the stadium and admission is just $3. Lots of great tailgate food and drinks will be available for purchase and tailgaters are encouraged to bring chairs, blankets, tailgate games, giant foam fingers, etc.
On a special note, this show will mark the debut of our new bassist, George Herbst. George takes over for longtime member, Soup Wignall who moved to Pennsylvania in June. George brings a lifetime of experience with him as former keyboardist for local legends, EXIT and Bubblegum Jack, and a new energy to the stage that fans will immediately love!
Should be a BIG night on many levels! Can’t wait! Are you ready for some FOOTBALL??!!!
