For those wishing to see the Glenwood Springs High School football team off to Aurora for the 2008 Class 3A state final can do so Friday at noon. Just show up at the school, in the area near the football field, to cheer the Demons on as they take off for their Saturday game against Fort Morgan at Legacy Stadium in Aurora.

How do you get there? Well, Legacy Stadium is Cherokee Trail High School’s home field and there are a couple ways to get there.

The toll way: Take Interstate 70 east to Denver until the Colorado 470 East exit (exit 260). Remain on 470 (portions of which fetch a toll) and then take the Smoky Hill Road exit (exit 10). Turn right onto East Smoky Hill Road and continue on until you hit Legacy Stadium, which is adjacent to Cherokee Trail High School.

The free way: To avoid the 470 toll portion, the stadium is accessible by taking 470 to Interstate 25 North, then take the Arapahoe Road exit, then go east all the way to the high school. This direction will take you into neighborhoods, but keep going.

The Demon football team be holding a family-oriented Thanksgiving get-together this 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.

Fort Morgan is quite the defensive power. The Mustangs are allowing just under 10 points a game, while scoring slightly more than 24 a contest. Oh, and they have four shutouts to their name in 2008.

By comparison, the Demons are averaging nearly 44 points a game and giving up right around 14.5. They’ve shut out two opponents.

If Glenwood Springs wins on Saturday, it would be the first Demon football title team without a Bolitho at quarterback. Scott Bolitho played the position for the 1978 state championship team and Norm Bolitho played for the 1980 team that won it all.
