The delta fields had exploded in white like huge bags of popcorn nuked in the September heat. Everywhere, thick tufts of cotton burst forth from the bolls that had once concealed their glory. It was harvest time.
Jamie Baker is praying that the stands at Williston’s Booster Stadium will be filled to capacity Friday night.
He’s not alone.
Jason Cason’s praying, too.
“I really believe that attendance at this event will rival the glory days of WHS football games back in the late ‘80s,” Cason said. “Back then, the entire stadium was filled, and fans filled both of the vacant areas at each end of the stadium.”
