With much consideration given by the Texas Education Agency (TEA), the University Interscholastic League (UIL), and Forney ISD, varsity football games will begin for both the Forney High School Jackrabbits and the North Forney High School Falcons. Games begin tonight, Thursday September 24, with the Falcons traveling to play against Frisco Lone Star and will continue tomorrow, Friday September 25, at City Bank Stadium with the Jackrabbits vs. Whitehouse High.

If you want to the be the best, you have to beat the best. To beat the best, you have to prepare to beat the best. For the North Forney Falcons, a team with playoff aspirations in the tough District 8-5A DII, that meant traveling to Aledo last Thursday night for a scrimmage against last season’s 5A-DII state football champions.
William Frank Yeoman was born in Elnora, Indiana, and later lived in Glendale, Arizona, where he “Bill” was both an athletic and academic “star” and “lettered” in five sports. Most notably, he was “All-State” in football.
The “Covid 19” struck area teams as three had to find new opponents for Sept. 11 games. Nevada Community vs. Paris North Lamar (covid cases), Kaufman vs. Henderson (covid), and Aubrey vs. Gainesville (covid)—the cases, it seems, were very limited, but no one wants to take unnecessary chances. Some rescheduling took place as you will see as results are reported!
School in Forney, Texas, began again, or rather I should say “opened” for the first day of classes for the school year, 2020—2021, and I feel sure it really was a “NEW” experience. I miss teaching, but what I miss is “shutting my door and teaching life.” I feel that I would have a hard time today trying to shut my classroom door on the COMPUTER. My “hat is off” to all the educators and parents and relatives who are undertaking the new experience of “some virtual” and some “in-person” teaching.
