With a hunger to see their #2 state-ranked Class 4-A Elizabethton Cyclones put on the back burner due to Daniel Boone finding a loop hole to get out of their Friday night contest at Citizens Bank Stadium, Cyclone Nation found a way to have a little black and orange party of their own.
A community pep rally took place Friday night at The Bank and the enthusiasm was top level as those in attendance saw the Elizabethton cheerleaders and band entertain while the fall sports teams were also introduced.
Elizabethton was supposed to play Boone in their home opener, but when a little weather snafu allowed the Blazers to sidestep the contest, a plan was put into place to take the edge off the football hunger that orange and black supporters are having awaiting their team to play its first home game of the season.
Right now, the first home game appears to be another three weeks away as the Cyclones will be on the road Friday at Sullivan East before wrapping up September on the road to Kingsport to take on the Dobyns-Bennett Indians.
Fans did get to see an early insight to the ‘Betsy Bands 2023 show which once again appears destined for great things in the new season. Jr. Cyclone cheerleaders joined the high school cheerleaders for the evening while the T.A. Dugger Marching Band joined their high school counterparts in the playing of several spirit tunes before taking a seat to see the new show.
A traditional Powder Puff football game closed out the evening of fun.
