Eat, drink, and play football

By: Kayla Comried [Newspaper Executive Editor]

Football team diner, a tradition that has been around at Marion for a long time. It is an event that occurs every Thursday night during the football season. It is a time when the football team can talk, eat, and become tighter as a camaraderie.

Chase Bruns, junior, is on the varsity football team. Football is a sport in which the team must move as one unit. In order to achieve this ultimate level of synchronism they must have a bond unbreakable by anything. A unit impenetrable by any force. Team diner helps them to achieve this level of togetherness according to Bruns. “It helps bring the team a lot closer together.” Along with helping bring the team together, it is also an enjoyable experience that the football players can do together.

As much as team dinner makes the football team closer. It is also a fun tradition shared by the team. “My favorite part is the food,” stated Bruns. Being a boy, many of them like the same thing, food. They have many different meals at these dinners, but so far this year Bruns’ favorite meal has been at Shane ONeil’s house. They had pulled pork. These team dinners are fun, and they always follow about the same layout. “We get there, we eat and talk, then the people who hosted it give a speech on why they play football. After that, the coaches talk for a little bit,” explained Bruns. These team dinners are a practice that they like to keep set in stone, and they believe these will continue for awhile.

They await this diner every week, and they look back on the diners and memories they have already made.
