Friday Night Lights. Camera. Action.

The Lincoln Parish Journal has begun showcasing our parish high school spirit squads (cheer, dance, band, mascots) during football season this fall.

Each Friday, we will spotlight one spirit squad member from a Lincoln Parish high school, highlighting that individual and their place within our spirit group community.

In addition to the FNL spotlight, we are encouraging individuals to submit action photos from any of our local spirit squad teams from the weekly high school contests. The LPJ will utilize these each week and run a “Friday Night Lights” photo-gallery at the bottom of our spotlight.

“We received a great response from our first Friday Night Light’s spotlight on Cedar Creek’s Riley Patterson,” said Judith Roberts, publisher of the Journal. “It was one of the most read stories of the entire week for the LPJ. We want to showcase all of our parish spirit groups, but we need people’s help by sending us photos from those Friday night high school games.  These young men and women make up the spirit squads that provide an important role in creating that electric Friday night atmosphere.”

Photos should be submitted by email to Photos and the information need to be submitted by Tuesday following the prior weekend’s games.
