This week is already off to a good start for the Panama Razorbacks football team, and the Hogs haven't opened their 2013 season.
The Razorbacks were supposed to open the season at 7:30 p.m. Thursday on the road against the Gore Pirates. However, since Gore's field is not ready, the game will take place at George Ollie Stadium.
â€śIt's a big plus for us,â€ť Panama coach Brandon Ellis said. â€śIt's good for our fans, our boosters, concessions and gates. It's big to have six home games this year.â€ť
The players were really enthusiastic about the news.
â€śEverybody was excited, as they should be,â€ť Ellis said. â€śThere's nothing like playing at home for our senior bunch. Having six games now at home helps out. Plus, our kids can now show off the new uniforms at home.â€ť
