Diego Gamez was named Homecoming King at the GHS pep rally held earlier in the day.
Pirate Stadium experienced unfortunate audio system difficulties throughout the entire evening. Working together to provide a back-up system, GHS student council along with help from GHS cheer sponsors provided a memorable halftime presentation. Granbury ISD thanks Pirate fans for remaining patient during the audio difficulties and providing enough sound from the stands to see the team to victory.
More photographs of the homecoming week festivities are viewable at the Homecoming Slideshow.
The halftime script including Homecoming Court bios is included below.
