Ole Brook - Football
Many annual traditions are alive and well in the community of Ole Brook. The Friday night lights burn brightly across King Field at the home football games of 5A Brookhaven High School Panthers.
After tailgating in nearby Panther Park, residents sporting their red and blue gather in the stands to be a part of the excitement generated when the players battle their opponents from near and far.
At BHS, football is a teaching tool to help make growing young men learn respect, honor, teamwork and discipline. Panther football touches the heart of tradition in Brookhaven during the school year. And, at the heart of Panther football, stands a dedicated coaching staff and their determined players.
Special thanks to photographer Johnny Smith for the team photos.
