This week’s game will be against Danville, beginning at 7 p.m. and it is also homecoming. The homecoming parade, showcasing the nominated princesses and queens, begins at 5:50 p.m. and runs from the Firehall to the High School.

And don’t forget after every home football game, the Hughesville Friends Church hosts “The Fifth Quarter”, which is a time when high school students get together to socialize and play exciting and fun games.
