Freshman Robby Preckle, wide receiver, kicks off in the second half of the game. Homecoming is an amazing experience every year, and especially this year because last year we didnt get the whole experience. This year was even more special. The parade, the tailgates, the assembly, the game and dance all together make for a week filled with spirit that no other school has. I love how Homecoming at Lafayette is celebrated with the whole community and not just high schoolers. Its a time where everyone comes together to celebrate something special, senior cheerleader Katie Godefroid said.
