My son Blake Pyron and his Best Friend Austin Waters suit up every Friday night in Sanger jerseys and lead the team out of the tunnel and onto the field — an honor bestowed on the two friends by their Sanger teammates. Blake and Austin have been Best Friends since they were toddlers. They work the sidelines during games providing the players with water and encouragement and occasionally serve as momentary Indians cheerleaders. And now, thanks to an idea initiated by senior defensive end Dalton Hassell, one of Sanger’s four captains, Pryon and Waters are the team’s leaders when it comes to running onto the field prior to kickoff. Dalton Hassell Football Captain has known Pyron and Waters since elementary school, and last year he was a mentoring pal to Pyron at Sanger High School. After seeing a video clip of the Nebraska football team in which a young fan suffering from cancer was given the chance to run for a touchdown in the Cornhuskers’ spring game, Hassell decided that Pyron and Waters should have a bigger role with the Sanger team. The idea became a reality before Sanger’s home opener. With Blake and Austin leading the Team they have WON the last four games! Blake and Austin are called the Indians’ lucky charms. The whole community is cheering on Blake and Austin!
