Friday night football is back, and Cedar Park High School started it off with a bang when they opened in the new McLane Baylor stadium.

The game began at 7:30 p.m. with the stadium full of cheering fans. Cedar Park was ahead the whole game against Aledo, the 4A Division 2 2013 state champs. When the fourth quarter came around Cedar Park was still pushing themselves to come out on top. With one minute left, Aledo made a touchdown, taking the lead and winning the game 21-17.

Clint Hormann, the coach of the tight ends and freshman coordinator, was very pleased with how the boys played.

“The team was very aggressive over all,” Hormann said. “There are a few things that need to be worked on though, such as communication.”

Senior offensive lineman Ethan Sullivant, also agreed that there are some things that the team needs to work on as a whole, but he was also just happy and grateful that the football team got to be the first to play in the Baylor Stadium.

“It was great playing on that field,” Sullivant said. “We were all nervous, but we pushed through it.”

As for the fans, they were yelling and cheering the whole game. Cedar Park’s student section was full of excitement. Many Cedar Park fans drove to Waco just for this game. Students, parents and teachers were all there rooting for their team.

Economics teacher, Kirstin Aguilar, was one of the many teachers that showed up to the game. As a regular fan, Aguilar was bound to be there.

“I thought that we would win of course,” Aguilar said. “But I’m still extremely proud of all the boys who played in that game.”
