Baconton’s James Davis, left, is tackled by Pelham’s Harry Crimley during Friday night’s season opener for both teams, which the Hornets won easily, 50-14. Davis scored both of the touchdowns for the Blazers, who were making their long-awaited varsity football debut.
This Friday night, a crowd of 5,000-8,000 fans are expected to be in the stands at the new Enterprise High School football stadium.
Enterprise High will christen Wildcat Stadium when they host the Sidney Lanier Poets of Montgomery.
The $5.5 million dollar state-of-the-art recreation facility can hold a maximum of 8,000 fans. Enterprise Police Chief T. D. Jones and Principal Rick Rainer have been meeting to discuss parking and traffic flow, both in and out of the stadium.
“The idea is to get here early for the best parking. There will be designated parking. [However there will be] no parking on the grass and toward the front of the school. That parking will be way away from the stadium,” shared Jones and Rainer.
Football fans can begin parking at around 4 o’clock Friday afternoon at Enterprise High School.
