Sr. Night events
Friday night’s football game at Obion County Central will be a special occasion to the Rebel faithful for two reasons.
The game marks Senior Night, and it will also be “Pink-Out Night” in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Prior to the 7 p.m. kickoff against District 13AA rival Haywood, senior football players, band members, cross country runners, golfers and their parents will be recognized. The Senior Night ceremony will begin at 6:30 p.m.
During halftime, the school’s HOSA chapter will sponsor a balloon release in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
