Painting the M

Painting of the “M”

A tradition in McCook, NE:  the day before the first home game of the season, the senior captains paint the large block letter “M” in the center of the field at Bison Stadium. Pictured carrying on this tradition are this year’s captains.

Football is a game of tradition and small town high schools’ are steeped in just such community rites of passage. In McCook, NE the painting of the “M” signifies “game on.’ State power Aurora will visit tomorrow night and expected is a huge crowd, a festive atmosphere and a great game. Small town high school football at its best!
