Homecoming time is here and new traditions are being ushered in. In the past few years the Homecoming candidates have been escorted onto the field by their fathers and were presented by the Chieftain captains. This year the candidates will once again be escorted by their fathers but the Chieftain captains will not be involved in the ceremony. Times change and so do traditions.
