Of the 41 SMS high school students polled during the Christian Brothers High School (CBHS) vs. Memphis University School (MUS) game on Friday, October 15, 34 students said they were there simply to socialize.
Kai Keith (12), on the MUS side, said, “CBHS [boys] are a lesser breed.” Similarly, Lily Kate Heard (10) said, “CBHS boys give me anxiety.”
On the other hand, SMS Pointmaster Lilly Linkous (12) said, “MUS boys are just not it. Not the move,” to which Ellie Smith (12) added, “Boo Owls.”
But sometimes, these reasons are not able to stand the test of time, as Smith found her way to the MUS side at half-time.
Undecided supporter Lilly Belle Longsworth (10) finds herself at the games, “because [the players are] attractive.”
After sharing her support for The Wave, Linkous said, “I think it’s kind of annoying that they don’t come to our games or root for us.”
After taking interest in Linkous’ frustration, we spoke with MUS quarterback George Hamsley (12). When asked who he would root for in a St. Mary’s vs. Hutchison game, Hamsley said, “I am rooting for the people that I know on each team to do well.”
Although the SMS and Hutch rivalry has a much more obvious answer, it seems no one really attends these football games in support of one particular team, but for the social aspect of it.
Whether you are an avid football fan or not, it is always safe to follow Hamsley’s advice: “Just clap when everybody else claps.”
