Friday, September 22nd was the 2017 Annual Homecoming Game. Our amazing Purple Eagles took home-field advantage to shine victoriously over visiting Roy-Hart/Barker with a final score of 58-6!!! And, the Albion crowd rejoiced!
The Albion HS Alumni Foundation opened our usual booth selling popcorn, horns, cowbells, pompoms, and other trinkets…..most of which we completely sold out of! We love greeting all the game fans – especially the alumni who stop by to say “Hi” and register for the drawings. It was great to see everyone!
Here are just a few of the photos taken during the game.
PLEASE NOTE: It got really busy and a little confusing when I was taking photos…..if I tagged any photo incorrectly, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to correct the posting. And…..if you’d like a copy of the photo I took of you, you may also email me with your request and I’ll be glad to send it to you!
