Royals Defense Snows GVPB; Prepares For White Out
Just 24 hours before the “White Out,” the Colo-Nesco defense once again held an opponent under 45 points. The Royals improved to 13-2 with a 55-39 victory on Friday evening over Grand View Park Baptist.
Now the Royals can turn their focus to Saturday night’s rematch with Roland-Story; a game the school has designated as a “White Out” when all fans are to wear white. The White Out has been made famous by the Penn State football program. According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, “Penn State first tried the White Out during the 2004 season, when Purdue came to town with Heisman Trophy candidate Kyle Orton at quarterback. Orton struggled, and Purdue was held a couple of hundred yards below its average in total offense…the White Out reached it zenith when Penn State knocked off Ohio State (2005) at home, 17-10, before a frenzied, white-wearing crowd. The stadium was rocking – literally.” (Sam Ross Jr., October 13, 2006)
Now, the Royals hope their own stadium will be rocking—literally, on a night when the school will induct it’s first-ever Hall of Fame class with the 1990 boys state champion team.
