Topeka West HS Jr. ROTC presents the colors prior to the game

Eudora District Stadium was all abuzz on Friday night. As part of the EHS football game festivities, EHS honored veterans past and present at a halftime ceremony. Boomer Mays led the team onto the field waving the red, white and blue.

Veterans from multiple wars were led onto the field at halftime while the EHS marching band played the themes from all branches of the military.
