The Forney High School Jackrabbits faced off against the North Forney High School Falcons in the much-anticipated Tenth Annual Unity Bowl at City Bank Stadium last Friday night, September 17. It was the Jackrabbits’ year to sit on the visitor’s side of the stadium as NFHS hosted as the home team this year, and the fans were happy to come fill the stands in support of their Rabbits.

Disclaimer: I went to this game as a fan of both Forney Teams, and my greatest hope was for an exciting game from start to finish, with no serious injuries and no unjustified disruptions. I believe I “got” all that I expected and more. But, I must admit that since I am a graduate of Forney High and was a 37-year-teacher there, I was pulling for the Rabbits to be the scoreboard winners. I have several times heard the old cliché that “both teams were winners,” and Friday night that was true! I will try to remember details correctly!

Forney High School’s Varsity Jackrabbits hosted Texarkana-Texas High for a Week Three matchup last Thursday night at City Bank Stadium. After a loss the previous week when they faced the Midlothian Panthers, Forney was ready to get a win on their home field. Fans were out in full force, with excellent support and performances by the Varsity Cheerleaders, Highsteppers, Forney Band, and Color Guard. The game began with our nation’s flag presented by the JROTC and the National Anthem performed by some of FHS’s very talented choir members.
