The football season might have ended, but we know how hard it is to put away that (or for you s, red and black) facepaint until next year.
Who says you have to?
For you, diehard fans, there's few places you'd rather be on a Friday night than high school bleechers, backing your favorite team. You clap the hardest, scream the loudest, and celebrate the most on behalf of your beloved team.
And boy, are you impressive.
In this video, we highlight some of the best fans we found this season who came to cheer on the great football teams in the area. Football season is over, but you can keep contributing news about other local sports:
Connect with Fellow Fans
There's a group of you Bengal fans congregating over on Facebook, and the more, the merrier. Talk about who's hot on the court or field that week, or which game you're most looking forward to. You can even trash-talk a little—we won't tell.
