The sights and sounds of high school football are back in more ways than one.
Paul Carpe is one among many working the food court under the stands at Laidley Field. While referee whistles are plenty during the game, Paul makes sure other sounds can be heard, too.
"Everyone here is a volunteer and the net proceeds go to the band," Carpe said.
It's the G.W. Band he's referring to. The more people buying food, the more funds go to the band.
"I usually get a hot dog...football and hot dogs go together," Josh Addington said.
While a steady stream of customers is good for the band, sometimes the lure of the game itself is too much for some volunteers.
"I've been told, not sure if this is true, but some of the parents, once in a while, will sneak out and go watch the game for a bit," Paul Carpe said.
