For those who live or work in Bowling Green, don red and gray Friday in support of Bobcat Day.
It's time to celebrate, what with Bowling Green High School welcoming a new football coach and new marching band director, plus the first home football game of the season, according to Bobcat Day catalyst Lee Hakel.
"I just really felt a need for the community to get behind high school sports again," said Hakel, explaining how she came up with the idea.
"We're asking people all day to wear red and gray" even if they're not going to the game, she stated.
"The goal is to remind everyone it's a new season," she said, and to remind Bobcat supporters the new season applies not only to the football team but to Coach Scott Seeliger and band Director Bruce Corrigan.
"We hope to keep people interested in what's happening with high school sports. Everybody does a better job when someone is there supporting you."
She says she has received a lot of support from local businesses when distributing the district's fall athletic schedule.
"People have been extremely positive and supportive and that has been wonderful."
The Bowling Green Rotary Club donated the funds to create a Bobcat Day banner which currently hangs over Main Street.
Joey Trimpey, whose daughter is a high school cheerleader, this week is decorating football team members' lockers at the high school.
"Our team needs our support and needs (that support) to be visible," said Hakel.
She encourages everyone to show up at 6:30 p.m. Friday for the marching band's pregame show. The game starts at 7 p.m. against Fostoria. Admission is $6 for adults and $5 for children. Senior residents 60 years and older, and who live in the Bowling Green Schools district, get in free by registering at the Central Administration Building, 137 Clough St.
"If we can get them there once, they'll come back," Hakel stated.
