There's something special about opening night. For the Panama Razorbacks, it will be doubly exciting.
First, they will begin the 2012 season at 7:30 p.m. tonight at George Ollie Stadium against the Gore Pirates. Secondly, since the game is tonight, unlike most of the state teams' openers being Friday night, it means that there should be quite a crowd tonight.
“Everybody is excited,” said Brandon Ellis, Panama's second-year coach. “It's the first game of the year, and it's on a Thursday night. We're expecting a full house. We're ready to go.”
