Central High School Bobcats celebrated superhero-themed Homecoming festivities all week long leading up to the game against Frenship Lubbock tonight at San Angelo Stadium. Building Bobcat spirit, students and staff participated in themed dress up days, decorated halls, and put together an energetic parade followed by a pep rally that filled San Angelo Stadium with Angry Orange excitement. The superhero theme was selected to honor everyday heroes like first responders who are so integral to the San Angelo community.
At the pep rally, JROTC and choir opened the evening followed by a welcome by Principal Bill Waters and performances by cheer, band and Tex-Anns.

Homecoming is a tradition welcoming back former Bobcats, and with decades of history spanning back to 1958 (with the first graduating class in 1961), it is alive and well in San Angelo. Alumni are invited to attend the game starting at 7pm at San Angelo Stadium to cheer on our players and student groups, or can tune in live with our official streaming partner Concho Sports Network at www.conchosports.com or listen live on KIXY 94.7 FM.
