WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — High school football season kicks off with its yearly BB&T Jamboree. Fans of all ages came out to make sure their voices were heard.
“Alright, let’s go E-L. Let’s go Bucs,” Sianna Stanley said.
“Go screaming eagles,” Misty Belgrave said
“Go Hoggard,” Molly Williamson and Emery Smith said.
Schools like North Brunswick, Hoggard, Laney, and many more, had fans cheering from the bleachers. For some fans, it’s important for the community to come out and cheer for the different schools.
“Well it’s good because that shows that they got support for, you know, the young kids. It’s coming up. It’s in high school, playing school athletics, so you know, it’s a good thing, to have this kind of support within the community. So I think it’s a good thing,” Thomas Merrick said.
For others, they just love the feeling they get when they come out to the Jamboree.
“I love the sense of competition and I love the fans and everything that comes with it. The excitement that everyone has for football this year,” Belgrave said.
“It keeps you hype. It keeps you ready. It makes you really excited about getting ready for the season too,” Stanley said.
“It’s cool. Yeah it’s really cool. Cause it’s a bunch of people and they’re all excited and rooting for different teams,” Williamson and Smith said.
