High school football fans brave the cold for big playoff games

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The cold weather on Friday night did not stop high school football fans from showing up to cheer on their teams in the playoffs.

In Lexington, fans for Frederick Douglass and Scott County came prepared.

"I am prepared," one fan told WKYT's Garrett Wymer. "Three pair of pants, three shirts, two pair of gloves, a scarf, a vest, a jacket and a flannel shirt."

"I got a blanket in my backpack, I got my gloves in my backpack," another fan said. "I'm going to keep warm the whole time. I've got a beach towel to sit on so I don't get cold."

"I have on a couple pairs of socks, a sweatshirt," another fan said. "These guys got on their toboggans, and I think he's got on two hoods. We're trying to stay warm."

"I've got a tanktop, a long-sleeved shirt, another long-sleeved shirt, a sweater, my jacket, a beanie, my gloves, two layers of socks," another fan said - "and my hot chocolate!"

Fans said these cold temperatures now are really just the icing on the cake for what has been a high school football season full of less-than-ideal weather on Friday nights. But they did not care - they came anyway to show their support.

"You just come prepared," one fan said. "That's what umbrellas and blankets are for. You come prepared. You've got to support!"
