The Clarksburg High School football team had their second consecutive win against the Wheaton Knights Friday, Oct. 12, for the school’s 2018 Homecoming football game. The Coyotes beat the Knights last year 49-21 and claimed a victory again this year with a final score of 40-6.

“All week we practiced at the level that the game was played,” senior captain Shane Paul said.

In addition to the game, at halftime, the homecoming court for each grade was announced. For the underclassmen, one boy and one girl from each grade were crowned homecoming prince and princess. Similarly, for the senior class, one boy and one girl were crowned homecoming king and queen and got to ride around the track in a 1969 Cougar convertible along with principal Edward Owusu. Senior cheerleader Brooke Shields, and senior football captain Ben Spiess took home the crowns.

“Ben and I were so excited to be crowned homecoming king and queen. It was definitely a great experience that we will remember for a lifetime,” Shields said.

Compared to regular home games, the annual homecoming game tends to attract a much bigger crowd due to the festivities that take place in preparation for the homecoming dance the following night. According to CHS security guard Craig Shields, the crowd was really into the game and everyone was excited to see the homecoming court.

“Some former students came back for the game,” Shields said, “There were even kids from Rocky Hill there.”

Recovering from a tough loss against Damascus the previous week, the Coyotes went into this game with confidence. Coach Bob Plante even promised the crowd a victory at the homecoming pep rally earlier that day.

“Especially since Coach Plante guaranteed the school a win, we knew we had to make it happen,” Paul said.
