Glenwood Springs football team plans Thanksgiving get-together

Only four days remain until Glenwood Springs High School tries for its first state football title since 1980.

The Demons will travel to Legacy Stadium in Aurora to take on Fort Morgan in the Class 3A state championship. Both teams are undefeated at 13-0.

As of Monday night, Glenwood Springs High School officials had yet to finalize any plans for a pep rally or send-off, though it’s likely we’ll see something of that nature by week’s end.

The Demon football team will, though, be holding a family-oriented Thanksgiving get-together on Thursday morning at the school that’ll feature a short practice and then a chance for players to celebrate the holiday with their families and community members starting at 10:30 a.m.

“We’ll have some hot cider and a Demon football Thanksgiving,” Glenwood Springs head coach Rocky Whitworth said.

Then it’s one more day of practice and off to the Front Range for the big game.

Kickoff for Saturday’s state championship is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. at Legacy Stadium in Aurora.

Legacy Stadium is on the campus of Cherokee Trail High School and is the largest high school stadium in Colorado according to Wikipedia. It features advanced, artificial turf and plenty of other goodies.
