I agree it would be great to have a lot of people attend the games. However, the Paly football field isn't quite ready for it. It seems they are working on adding seating, but as of this past weekend, the home side of the field (which fills up for most games) was still the old stands. The visitor side had space for two dozen or so fans. I've attended a couple of Paly-Gunn games at Gunn, where the seating capacity is good. Unless they work fast, there won't be anywhere near enough seating at Paly.

Great Friday Night Lights environment last weekend at Paly. Yes, some issues with the seating since the new stands didn't get installed in time for this season, but we're all neighbors this weekend as Gunn and Paly face off in the Little Big Game. Come on out, have dinner from the new Snack Shack, & enjoy some high school football.
It's a Great Night Out!
